Most likely your guest user has a negative UID and GID. 

run the following 

> testparm -s | grep "guest account"
        guest account = nobody

and then 

> grep nobody /etc/passwd
nobody:*:60001:60001:SVR4 nobody uid:/dev/null:/dev/null

Make sure the UID and GID are not -1,-2. If they are create a new
user and set that as your guest account.
