Greetings ...

	Installed the rpm from Samba.org for RedHat 9, and found the same problem ... removing valid users = %S from [home] gettings it working, but I do remember somebody explaining that this option makes things a little more secure.

	Is this true, and is this a bug or is there something better to use?
