I've had several instances now on my mixed NT 3.51/4.0/Samba
network where clients on Win boxes would enter a username
such as "THisbites", and be denyed access. The account in
/etc/password was capitalized as "THisbites" and the NT
domain account shows in User Manager as "THisbites".
Nonetheless, Samba refuses them access, and claims (on
a debug level3 ) that there is no such user.
Changing /etc/password to be "thisbites", i.e. all lowercase,
makes it work.
