Why does Mac OS say 3 users are connected to my shares? I'm the only one connected?

When I connected via Screen Share and clicked Restart on my PowerMac FTP/Media server a few minutes ago, it said something to the extent of 'There are 3 users connected to your shares, do you wish to disconnect them?'

I know for a fact I'm the only who was connected (to my current knowledge anyways), and there's only one other person who can log-in to my FTP server, but he wasn't connected. It's worrying me that someone outside my network has gotten into my server that shouldn't be in there.

I've closed the port on my router so no one can access my server outside my network, but I'm freaked out, and would like an explanation....

Am I worrying for nothing? Is this a common Mac OS issue/antic?

I'm running Mac OS 10.4 on the server btw.
Lion on my Mac Mini.


EDIT 1: Just updated the server to 10.4.11, and checked some log files from the past few days, I see nothing about any users accessing the server but myself? Weird...
