I'm not quite sure if this opens a security hole: Did you try to setup your share 
with "public = yes"?

Your logs show that samba changes the account to the guest account ("nobody") when 
it does not find the user validated by the password server in its local 

It might be worth checking if "valid users" is checked before or after "public = 
yes" or if this opens the share to everyone.

Hasta la vista,
