Connecting to a server with different user names

I have a group of users that are curently using NFS Maestro to connect to unix systems
from their NT 4.0 PC's.  I am trying to move away from using NFS Maestro to just use
samba on the unix systems but I am running into a problem with users that are connecting
to a server using two different user names.

Drive	Share		Username
j:		\\frs\data1	bob
p:		\\frs\data2	ted

This works using NFS Maestro but when using the microsoft networking client, the first
connection works OK but the second connection get the error "The credentials supplied
conflict with an existing set of credentials".  I have tried the same drive mappings from
an NTrigue system and in works OK.

Is there a registry entry I can change in NT 4.0 to make this work?

Is the fact that it works under NTrigue a specific NTrigue hack ?

I am using Samba 1.9.17P4 on Solaris 2.5.1 with the following settings in my smb.conf:
   security = server
   workgroup = OFS
   password server = nyntpdc
   username map = /etc/opt/samba/

Thanks in advance
