The local device name is already in use

What is "local device name"? The drive letter to which the network file share is mapped?

Apparently, "local device name is already in use." is the error message displayed when I try to access a mapped file share from a Windows workstation after the share has been removed from the specified server.

So why not report something like "The file share does not exist"?
