Are you logging into Windows NT with the same username as you are using
There appears to be a bug in WinNT which will ignore the username you type
in to connect to your Samba share IF it differs from the username with
which you logged into Windows. Note that this is for any SMB share (Samba
or NT). The problem appears to be fixed in Win2000 and does not occur in
all installations of WinNT, so I don't know exactly where or how the bug
