No, it's not.  The laptop is not storing the password; it's using the
login credentials each time.  The "Use Windows login credentials" (or
whatever it's called; can't remember off the top of my head) option is
checked.  In fact, if I un-check it and have Windows prompt me for the
credentials, then the authentication works properly!  (With or without
the domain name.)  And it's the same username/password that I use to log
on to the laptop.  It's very strange that it works fine when I have
Windows prompt for the credentials, but won't when I have it use the
login credentials.
