Local administrator

Imagine that you are logged with "administrator" account on a PC, then you map a drive on another PC that also has "administrator" account and for some reason the password is the same as in your PC (it may happen if you are managing both PCs). In this case Windows will not ask you for a password, althought you might think that these are two different accounts and another PC should reject it. This effect appears at least on Windowx XP SP2.
