If a normal install doesn't do the shared thing, then for this 
particular problem shouldn't a normal install be less likely to have the 
issue that i am having because users aren't sharing dlls etc?

I've never fully grasped this change user install thing on terminal 
server, mainly because i've never found a detailed explanation of what 
it actually does.
