No ready answer, but .....
Can you see what user name is being given when the user logs on?

Here is what I log for each user:
client machine NetBios name = ahamm002 (%m)
Primary goup name of U = ftp (%G)
IP address of client = (%I)
Netbios name of server = jhammer6 (%L)
Internet DNS of client= laptop.jhammer.org (%M)
NIS home directory= jhammer6 (%N)
Protocal level = NT1 (%R)
Current time and date= 2002/07/28 15:52:49 (%T)
Session user name (one the client wanted)= ahamm002 (%U)
Architecture of remote machine= Win2K (%a)
Process ID of current server= 28701 (%d)
Internet DNS hostname of server= jhammer6 (%h)
Path of services home directory from NIS= (%p)
Samba version= 2.2.1a (%v)
Home directory of user in u= /home/ftp (%H)
Root directory of current service = / (%P)
Name of current service = public (%S)
Primary group name of u in share = ftp (%g)
User name of current service = ftp (%u)               

So, I would log the %u, %H, %U , %G and whatever else you might find of
interest as people log on. A preexec parameter would be enough, eg: 
preexec = cat %u %H %U %G >> /tmp/logon
and see what is being assigned. (I use only guest logins, with ftp as the
assigned user.)

I doubt this will offer an easy solution but it might give you data to
puzzle this out.

Are there no error in the samba log file?

Of passing interest, it looks as if my version of samba interprets an XP Pro client
as Win2k. Don't know what that means.
