I just tested this with the latest CVS (with my patch).

I added a share in the smb.conf,

        comment = user %U
        path = /tmp 

And I see the share name and comment name with my current
logged in user name substituted.

So I can't reproduce your problem here.

a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
