I've never heard of it...

Win9X will only log in with the username used at the first logon prompt.

WinNT/2k will allow you to use another username, but only one other
username to a remote server at a time.

Nothing Samba can do here - it's up to what the client wants to send. 
But having it as master browser might be causing the client to keep the
connection, and therefore blocking on the username.
