Can't write to Shared Documents folder

Windows XP Home SP1 and all updates.
As part of a general tightening of security on going to broadband I took a Network share off of my Shared Documents folder and put it on a new sub-folder within Shared Documents. I then found that I had no write access to the Shared documents folder contents as a local user. This applied to a user with Administrator privs and to the Administrator running in safe mode. The only way I can get read and write access to Shared Docs locally is by putting back the Network share plus write access for remote users.
I suspect the I have been running in the Network Shared mode since the machine was new and I connected it to an older W98 machine. I hadn't taken notice as I make very little use of Shared Docs. Surely Network access doesn't need to be set for local read/write access to Shared Docs. Nothing found on MS Knowledge Base or searches here quite fits this.
Any ideas folks ?
