However I just tried an ssh passwordfull login and mapped drives are listed as Unavailable! Guess my understanding of this is screwed up!
Not necessarily. Did you try to access the mapped drives? They're still

doesn't understand this and doesn't show it as such by 'net use' but it
works just fine for me here.
