[Samba] "valid users = %S" doesn't work in 3.0.1

I just scanned several lists and HOWTOs for the problem
with "valid users = %S" in 3.0.1

It worked fine in 2.2.8 but now, when I add this line
"valid users = %S"
to a share, I cannot log in any more
(The system asks me for a password but then denies access).
When I use a defined username instead, it works fine.

I read the posting in samba-technical from
Gerald (Jerry) Carter jerry at samba.org

where he suggests to use 'valid users = %D+%S' instead,
but this doesn't work, either.

Can anyone give me a hint
Many thanks
