Visual C++ fails if project is on network drive

I'm using Visual C++ .NET 2003 on Windows 2000. If my project is on a network drive (hosted by a Samba server), then the build fails in several strange ways. Sometimes, the compiler complains it cannot open a temporary file. Today, the compiler gave me INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR.

I don't care if the solution is to change something in the Windows/MSVC environment or on the Samba server; I'll just need a solution.

I've found the solution myself: I need to disable Precompiled Headers (/YX). Btw, Microsoft seems to think that compiling code over a network share shouldn't work: See
