Windows 7 acting up with samba shares


We have a samba server with a couple of shares defined as follows:

Code:
[Storage]
   comment = Storage
   browseable = yes
   path = /home/samba
   writable = yes

[Backup]
   comment = Backup
   browseable = yes
   path = /mnt/hd2/home/samba
   writable = no

[Administration]
    comment = Administration
    path = /home/adm
    valid users = adm
    public = no
    writeable = yes
    browseable = no
We have two samba users: samba and adm. The first is used to connect to Storage and Backup shares, and adm is used to connect to Administration share. There are two problems:

1) If Storage and Backup shares are connected to a Win7 box, the Administration share cannot be connected. All we get is an error saying that that share is already connected with different username.

2) We have managed to work around this by connecting the Administration share with the IP-address of the server instead of it's name(?!). The problem then becomes that sometimes connecting Administration share this way makes Storage share read-only. Not always though.

Any ideas?

--edit--

Solved. Wrong "security" type in smb.conf (was "user", needs to be "share").

--edit2--

No it's not solved actually. For some reason the Storage share still occasionally gets connected read-only. Win7 also tends to forget the passwords/usernames for some shares upon reboot (not all of them, though). Oh, for heaven's sake... >
