[Samba] Client access multiple shares with different usernames...

I have a FreeBSD box with samba and two shares '\\bsd\foo' and '\\bsd\bar'.
Each require a different password. (Different system user accounts and
different corresponding samba account.) They both work. The problem is that
from Windows 7 and windowsXP clients I can connect to '\\bsd\foo', but then I
can never connect to '\\bsd\bar' until I restart. Thereafter I can never
connect to '\\bsd\foo' until I restart... and so on.

Is there a way I can connect to multiple shares from the same client, using
different authentication for each share? For example, if I could put a username
in a UNC path that would solve everything:

    \\foo at hostname\some\resource

Any suggestions or links to examples would be great.


Below is my test smb.conf file::

        smb ports = 139

            # Makes samba lie to stupid programs like photoshop, reporting
            # this (in megabytes) as the maximum volume size. This does
            # not limit the actual size of the volume, only the reported
            # size.

        create mask =  0644
        directory mask = 0755
        client NTLMv2 auth = yes

        null passwords = no

            # null passwords.

        unix extensions = no
            # Keep this off if you enable wide links. This is only used by
            # unix clients and is of no use to windows clients.

        wide links = yes
        follow symlinks = yes

        path  = /home/%S
