I just did a quick capture of "Deep Mapping" (as Kenneth MacDonald 
informed us it's called).

As I had suspected, the TreeConnectAndX connects to the share, but the 
client then performs all operations on the requested subdirectory.  So...  
it appears (from my quick look) as though my earlier guess was correct.  
That is, Deep Mapping occurs on the client side.

Kewl stuff.  Thanks!
