On my MacBook Pro running 10.7.5, I see my Mac Mini listed twice under SHARED. There is a connection counter of some sort next to each item. The connection count is constantly increasing. It is currently at 600+. How do I remove these items from the sidebar? I don't want to disable sharing completely, I just want to remove the Mac Mini so that it doesn't show up there.

Incidentally, I noticed if I go into Finder Preferences and disable Back to My Mac, the two items listed under shared go away. But I don't want to disable Back to My Mac.
