    Umm...slow down, breathe, and please explain the problem a little more thoroughly and understandably.

    Methinks (if I've understood the problem correctly... your description is a bit flakey) it's a bug in Windows, actually. Windows has severe problems with connecting to the same server using more than one username, and behaves in the most unexpected ways when you try to do that.
