Thank you.
At this point I'm wondering if it's a lack of understanding on my part, a 
difference between XP Pro and XP Home, or a bit of both. It appears (although 
not yet verified) that users with XP Pro systems were unaffected by the 
change while users with XP Home systems were. I assumed that users on 
non-domain member/controlled systems using local logins would have no issues 
when they used their domain credentials to access domain resources, this 
appears to be true with XP Pro but with XP Home the name of the users 
workstation must be added to the allowed workstation list or the "unexpected 
network error" occurs.
