I think the best way to do this sort of thing is to forget about
user.map and put this in your smb.conf:
guest account = nobody
map to guest = Bad User
That way, when samba sees a user that it doesn't know about, it just
maps it to 'nobody'. You should investigate the other 'map to guest'
options by doing 'man smb.conf'. There's really a lot of good
information in there.
