[Mongrel] file access with mongrel running as windows service

i have an archive of documents (word, excel, jpeg, png, gif...)  
residing on a network share that is accessed via send_file.

when running mongrel on the command line the files are properly  
with mongrel running as a service they don't.

now normally i would think that should be fixable by configuring the  
service to run under a user that can read the files....

but i've already tried that without success.

running the service as system or administrator or the user i'm using  
for development (the same user i run the mongrel on command line) does  
_NOT_ help. so i can't figure out how to get this to work.

development or production mode also doesn't make a difference.

from what i've seen so far this generally applies to any File IO access.

could this be a bug in the mongrel service implementation?
