However I just tried an ssh passwordfull login and mapped drives are listed as Unavailable! Guess my understanding of this is screwed up!

Not necessarily.  Did you try to access the mapped drives?  They're still
accessible, even though they're not "available".  I'm not sure why Windows 
doesn't understand this and doesn't show it as such by 'net use' but it 
works just fine for me here.
