Right, but I think Andrew was talking about a more general case.
In this case, the example you gave did *not* make an anonymous connection
to the LMB. You used the Administrator account. Try "guest" or just
leave it blank.
In any case, if there is a bug talking to W2K from smbd in HEAD then this
same problem could impact the situtation you're describing.
