This is (I think) an example of a perenial problem, and one that (I feel)
should be high on the fix-list.

The parameter you most likely need to play with as a _compile_ time one,
called GUEST_SESSETUP (or v.similar).

This takes 0,1 or 2 as a value and it alters the way clients are connected
as the guest user (make sure the service you want to connect to has a valid
'guest user' too).

More information is in the documentation (or possibly makefile / source
