    Assume PC layout as follows:

    C: Hard Drive
    D: CDROM
    E: not used
    F: Mapped to a network share

    Plug in a USB device with 2 partitions, one CDROM with autorun files. 2nd
    partition is R/W with application.

    The 2nd Partition on the USB device will use the same F: drive as the
    network share.

    This was to be fixed in Vista, same bug appears in Win2K and XP SP2
