The funny thing is that the user dependent part *is* the login name,
but not the Windows one, it is the *Linux SERVER* one, and no mapping
has been done between Windows logins and Linux usernames. IT...

Anyway, it seems like Tim's suggestion is working (for the moment), so
I'll stick with it as this network/filenames issue has already taken
me a ridiculous amount of time to fix :-)

Thank you guys for your help!
