On the system we use for data purposes, our Data Mule, we run the Mule user in restricted user mode all the time.
The Data Mule has received the Windows Live Beta updates via WSUS and Messenger is running.
WLM version: 2008 (Build 8.5.1288.816)
Whenever a new conversation is started, or a message window pops up while logged in as the restricted Mule user, an Offline Files balloon pops up at the same time.
This is consistent with every new message started or received.
One has to click on the balloon or the little Offline Files computer pretty much every time to restore the shared drives.
It doesn't seem to be happening on any other machines where the user is logged in as a local admin. But, it definitely bears further testing.
Good thing this is a beta! ;)
