[Samba] Newbie question - Wrong Way to map a share?

After a recent upgrade (details below) as many as 30 percent of our
returning users are having trouble mapping SAMBA shares of their home
directories on the "terra" server. Many report that the problem "just
goes away." I've only been able to pin down a couple of them.
Here's what I see. User tries to map the drive, fails, and get a box
with the window:
This doesn't work. If I replace terra\Guest with just the unix
username, it works fine. Everyone says "but it USED to work the other
way. It SHOULD work the other way"
So: *should* it work the other way? What changed? Can I change it
back? Or do I just need to re-educate all my users? (and take the hit
for making undocumented changes to a production server....) I don't
want to make any changes that would creating an additional account
for every user or every machine.
I did start with a fresh config file with this installation.
System is authenticating via NFS and unix passwords, NOT using Active
Thanks for a clue bonk,
PS on the server I see check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user
[Guest] -> [Guest] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER

(same Clariion LUN, moved to new box, veritas deport/import-ed.)
