	Well spotted, but if the share is been created with just what us humans she as the username, why can't we have the "valid users" options expect the same thing ... other wise if I was running multiple auths, then I would have a problem with usernames without a domain.

	This is get me by for now, but I think this might cause problems later on.

Thanks again
