Users reconnecting to disconncted sessions that are not theirs is reason enough.

We were running 6 Metaframe XP FR3 servers on Windows 2000 sp4 boxes. This tech setup the office users to all use the same domain account to logon to a published desktop to these servers. Apparently this use to actually work before we upgraded. We now run 6 Metaframe XP FR3 boxes on Server 2003 sp1 boxes. Now when they happen to logon to this published desktop and hit the same server, the first session will get overwritten/disconnected. Can someone help me list out the MULTIPLE reasons that this type of setup is a bad idea. And also help me understand why it might have worked on the old servers and not the new servers?
