Yes, the KB is no help. However, I did pick around in the XP registry and 
found the following that might be of use.



 InfoTip @%SystemRoot%\system32\wiashext.dll,-330
 LocalizedString @%SystemRoot%\system32\wiashext.dll,-331


(type) REG_SZ

 (default) rundll32 wiashext.dll,AddDeviceWasChosen

I don't know if it matters to samba, but it looks like the InfoTip and 
LocalizedString entries cause the expansion. Why in the heck it happens 
accessing my personal/soccer share via samba is the mystery. It looks like 
there might be something strange in the way samba is handling the 
@%SystemRoot% string.

Does any of this make sense??????
