Anyone having this issue where it will sometimes just forget / lose the user/pass for the SMB shares? So far if i power off, back up then it seems to access the shares no problem. i'll be doing stuff (checking out misc Apps etc..), then just click back into my files and it wont go in. It asks for the user/pass and if i put it in, still no go. then i reboot, all is well

*edit* shares are on an XP Sp3 machine**

I have the same issue as well and am using a computer with XP Sp3. The most irritating part is that if I go to the Home screen it shows that I am logged in, but when I go to access local folders it asks for user/pass. A complete restart or sometimes log out is the only answer I have found. It seems it may have to do with SAMBA. http://forums.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=22003
