Any idea why I get one (or more, as shown here) instances of this message after login, or sometimes when launching an application? Connection Failed. There was an error connecting to the server “Soyuz”.

(Soyuz is the name of another computer on my home network. This message occurs whether or not I am at home. I can also manually connect to Soyuz, no problem.)

It looks like OS X is trying to connect to a drive which is unreachable.

This can happen when an app is trying to open a file stored on the remote "Soyuz" server. Check for obsolete apps in the following preference panel:

System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items
