Ronald -- the listing of "guest" as %U is not at all my experience. My
experience is %U is the username on the windows box or the -U arg of
smbclient, irrespective of any guesting issues. Either I've spaced out or
you've discovered a very interesting anomoly. Can you reproduce this
behavior with a tiny smb.conf?
