[Samba] samba ldap and anonymous shares

     We are moving all of our linux and samba authentication to OpenLDAP 
and we have several anonymous shares that users access to run custom 
     After moving everything to OpenLDAP, anonymous access is broken but 
only from windows clients.  If you connect from a Linux client and pass 
the username of nobody without a password, it works just fine.  Even 
specifiying the nobody user from a windows client does not work.  
     The server's local passwd file still has the nobody user in it.  I 
tried both with and without the nobody user in the OpenLDAP directory.
     Any ideas?
