Hmmm... I think that this behavior merits changing Samba's authentication
mechanism for security=server. 

I'd suggest doing what Win95 does when validating client connections with
user-level access control. Maybe if someone captures a trace between a Win95
"server" asking autentication from a WinNT PDC this could be implemented (I
don't have the tools or know ledge to interpret the trace).
