Hi Dietrich,
According to your information, and the information you showed us from the
include = smb.conf.%U 
is the correct thing to have in the smb.conf if you want to include the file
smb.conf.anna when the windows user 'anna' makes a successful connection;
Based on the smbstatus, I would say that the user 'anna' is being username
to the unix user franz.  Is this correct?
Perhaps if you share your smb.conf and smb.conf.anna with the list, someone
spot something.

I don't use the %a
in the smb.conf I have the following entry:
include = smb.conf.%U what should be to:
include = smb.conf.anna if User:anna connects to the Samba-Server.
