[Samba] domain or not domain

I can't thing of how to look for this problem in the archive!
I have a Redhat7.2 server running the 2.2.4 rbl version of SAMBA. This system is
joined into our CLUSTERS domain and has just a read-only share on it. The PDC is a
2.2.3a SAMBA on an IRIX system.
If I take a WinXP system which is just a member of the CLUSTERS workgroup and not
joined into the domain, login to that with a suitable username and password, I can
then browse to the server and see the contents of the read-only share.
If I take a WinXP system, which is joined into the CLUSTERS domain, I can login with
the same username as above. I can browse to the server and see the folder for the
read-only share but, if I try to open the share, I get a username/password prompt!
Giving the same username and password for the login user just gives the prompt
again. However, if I give a different username and corresponding password, I can
open the share!
The log-file on the server says:
No such user <username-snipped> [CLUSTERS] - using guest account
In the log on the PCD I can't see any indication that it rejected the username,
though it is difficult to see the wood for the trees there!
