'map to guest' option

I'd like users who log on as a user who does not exist on the system to be quietly allowed access as the guest user.  I set the 'map to guest = bad user' option in the [global] part of the config, but there's no change to the default behaviour which is to deny access to unknown users.

The Samba server is set up as a PDC and the workstations are running win2k.  I've had the same problem with Samba 2.2alpha1 and TNG.

I'd be grateful for any ideas.
