This is what I get when I try to login from my NT server 4 box

[1999/07/22 08:01:56, 1] smbd/password.c:pass_check_smb(504)
  Couldn't find user 'nobody' in smb_passwd file.
[1999/07/22 08:03:35, 1] smbd/service.c:make_connection(521)
  scienide ( connect to service File Server as user nobody
(uid=65534, gid=100) (pid 16225)

I get this when I try to access a password protected share based on the
username %u or the group %g.
Although I have been succesfully authenticated by another nt which serves as
a PDC, samba cannot understand who I am.
I use password encyption and I have nt 4 SP5 installed.
