I think the above quote from Corinna answers this question. In other words,
if Windows would ask you to identify yourself if you browsed to this share
as a user the domain doesn't know about, then you'll see a problem when
trying to use this share with cron (and some other) tools.
Someone will correct me if I'm wrong. ;-)
