This situation came up during testing, and I am curious about it even though
in a real world way it is irrelevant.

I have a computer that is on the local network and is VPN'd into the same
network. I connect to a CIFS enabled netware volume. Everything is great.
If I then disconnect the VPN,I lose access to the CIFS share, and only
rebooting will fix.

Obviously, there is no reason to be VPN'd into the same network that you are
attached to. But I do not understand the behavior. Once the VPN dies, the
computer should still be able to get back to the share.
