[Samba] NT domain authentication turns into "nobody"

My Samba server runs RedHat Linux 7.2, Samba v2.2.1a-4.
When I try to "map a network drive" from W2k or Win98 using
my NT domain ID, "cbenson", Samba contacts the WINS server
and the log says:
Got a positive name query response from <the WINS server>
Allowed connection from <my PC>
but then it turns around and says
Invalid username/password for nobody [nobody]
which is totally wierd. It's as though at the last minute, it
decides instead of cbenson I must be nobody!
If I give it a valid (but different) Linux user ID & password
as recorded in the smbpasswd file, of course if fails NT
authentication because there's no such user in the NT domain,
but it makes the connection because it authenticates through
Here's my smb.conf. So have I made some stupid mistake? Or is
this a bug in Samba?
encrypt passwords = yes
hosts allow = 140.107.
lm announce = false
local master = false
log file = /var/log/samba/log.smb
debuglevel = 2
server string = Cachalot Samba Server %h
smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
username = /etc/samba/smbusers
wins server = 140.107.<x>.<y>
security = domain
workgroup = PHS-SC
password server = *
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
printing = bsd
comment = Home Directories
path = %H
browseable = yes
writable = yes
valid users = cbenson
Thanks in advance.
