The thing is that it seems that every time this problem comes up, it 
comes down to 'everyone' being removed from the 'share' tab. Now I never 
have this problem, but then I never touch the 'share' tab.

 From what you saying, if you remove 'everyone' from the share tab, you 
must replace it with 'domain user', so why bother ?
