If the user/pass directly in the source URL (or during source addition) then XBMC doesn't have it in passwords.xml. This, ofcourse, is something that XBMC should remedy - at least in the case where the user adds a source and fills in the user/pass fields.
I don't think you can fix it in the skin?
This is exactly what my issue was. I have a NAS that has 1 single share, in that share I have separate folders, Movies, TV, Music, Photos and inside those I have a properly structured tree for it's media type. I simple use XBMC to add the single share as a media source via:
Then, to add other sources, say media type TV I simple browse my sources, choose the media share and select the TV folder. Since XBMC maps the share on boot with a saved username/password I assumed that it would use that authentication for that source.
I'll look into setting up a password.xml so I don't have to open my share to "everyone"
