Samba users,

I asked this question before but didn't get any responses so either no
one knows or it just got missed, so I'm going to pose it one more time
just for good measure.... 
I am using samba 2.06 on aix432 with domain level authentication and it's
working great. However, when I want to connect to a share as a user other
than the user that I logged into the domain with - using the "Connect as:"
"Password:" fields in NT4.0, the authentication fails. Has anyone been able
to make this work, without a workaround like using the 'net use' command?
I should in theory be able to browse the share, double-click it which will
pop up a ConnectAs/Password window, type in any userid that exists in that
domain along with the password and be allowed access to the share. Thanks
for any help you can provide me with,
