I suspect a bug in Samba 2.0.7 for Sun Solaris 2.7 

I have the following configuration.

Sun Solaris 2.7
Samba 2.07
Windows NT 4 SP 5 Domain Controller

Steps taken
1.	I created the Machine Account on the NT Domain and joined the Samba
Server to the Domain. 
2.	I created a directory on the Sun Box and gave permissions to
3.	I added a parameter in the global section of the smb.conf file
indicating where my username.map file is.
4.	I added a share in the smb.conf file giving permissions to a valid
UNIX user. This UNIX user is mapped in the map file to an NT user.

I can only open the shares of the first user in the map file. It seems the
rest of the entries are ignored. If I move one of the other line entries to
the first line, those users have access to their shares but the rest of the
entries are ignored. Test and itdept has accounts on the UNIX server.

I have tried this configuration on Linux and it works 100%. 

User.map file
test = mosrvn1 backup mosfmc
itdept = mosrvn1 mosfmc

smb.conf file
# Samba config file created using SWAT

	path = /archive/test2
	valid users = test
	writeable = Yes

	comment = ITarchive
	path = /archive/it
	valid users = itdept

Is this a known problem? Is there a patch available to fix this?

Can you respond ASAP.
