[Samba] Winbind problems when mapping shares

I have just installed Samba 2.2.5. I am using Winbind and have changed the 
following in /etc/nsswitch.conf.

passwd: files winbind
group: files winbind

I successfully joined a PDC domain. When I list files, I see that groups 
are being resolved from winbind. I have  userid xtuser defined to Linux. I 
see the following:

ibm9672:/home # getent passwd | grep xtuser
xtuser:x:11240:11763:test user:/home/xtuser:/bin/bash
PEP+XTUSER:x:11240:10255:E56157 | 062-0000:/home/xtuser/xtuser:/bin/false

However I get the following error trying to map to Samba shares:

[2002/07/15 17:51:04, 1] smbd/password.c:pass_check_smb(545)
  Couldn't find user 'pep+xtuser' in passdb.

I have xtuser defined to Linux. I noticed that output from getent shows 
xtuser from Linux and PEP+XTUSER from the NT domain. The error message 
shows lower case pep+xtuser. Is this my problem? How do I correct it. I 
appreciate any assistance that anyone can provide. Thanks in advance.

        path = /home/%u
        browseable = No

        path = %H
        username = %S
        read only = No
        create mask = 0700

        valid users = +PEP+PEPCOUsers-NM
        force group = PEP+PEPCOUsers-NM
        read only = No
        create mask = 0770
        force create mode = 070
