problem with homes share and long user names

I have been using the samba 2.05a package on Red Hat linux 6.1
I am not sure if this is a windows NT or samba issue, but the
homes share for a user like administrator (characters =>13) then
the windows NT machine when trying to access this share results
in the error with network path not found...
I know this must be a common problem.. If the user name =< 12
characters, then things work fine..

Is there a way to get around this?
