Even when 'guest ok = yes' is not set on any share, the guest account
is used for certain protocol operations, particularly browsing.  If
your host does not particpate in any of this, is a normal fileserver,
for example, then set 'restrict anonymous = 2' to compleatly disable
guest logins. 

(an then, still keep your guest account around, as there will still be
a few things we become guest to do)
