I meant to say "isn't" not "is" an entry in /etc/passwd 

If sven is in the password file you will try to authenticate in 
user mode security for sven. All other users will be mapped to
the guest account because of your "map to guest = Bad User" entry.
If the client machines don't have the registry fix, no password
will work for any name in /etc/passwd.
