Samba simply does not know how to handle this username format.  If you
forward me that log, I can look at it, but is there any urgent reason
why you cannot use the more traditional username formats?

Also, please file a bug on bugzilla.samba.org

(I intend to fix it, it's just a matter of what urgency this is, if
there is a good workaround).
