If by "guest user" you mean the samba "guest user", then do it in
another way:

- don't do any manual mappings
- take out apsf from smbpasswd
- in smb.conf:

security = user
map to guest = bad user
guest account = apsf  (or another user)

path = /path/dir
guest ok = yes
writable = yes

make /path/dir readable by the apsf (or another user) user.

User which don't provide a good userid will be mapped to the guest user
and will be able to access the share.

If by "guest user" you mean something else then ignore what I've written
