Windows 7 RC Media Center won't index library if its a share on my NAS

I recently upgraded my Media Center PC from XP MCE to the Windows 7 RC to make sure there wouldn't be any problems. Well, in addition to updating the software, I figured I'd implement my plan to use a share on my NAS (mapped to a drive letter for my convenience) to house my library as that made synchronization/backups/etc. easier. Especially since I've added a couple other MCE computers around the house...

Couldn't add the NAS to the home group, symbolic links were beating the snot out of my NAS - and it still took a day for new material to be added to the library... so I put a 1TB drive in the Media Center and am now using that as the share. Makes using the laptops in the kitchen and bedroom as extenders easier too.

It's a know issue (bug?) since Vista that has not been addressed or at least fixed.
