My guess is that you used the (default) 'nobody' account for 'guest user
= ' in your smb.conf. Samba doesn't like accounts with a uid or gid of
-1 or the like, and its 'self-check' showed that when it tried to change
to that user, it didin't work - so rather than give guest users root, it
HP uses a guest account of 'smbuser' (with a 'normal' uid/gid) in their
CIFS/9000 product (samba rebadged) to get around this.
