Windows connecting as nobody

Hi there.

What are the known reasons a Windows (XP) client might invoke some
operations on the server as nobody (that is - guest), even though it
has a connection open?

My specific problem is printing.  Users try to print, and sometimes it
is sent as nobody and thus they cannot (print quota).
