[Samba] RPC Vamp + caps

Am using RPC Vampire to pull accounts from an NT4 PDC to a Linux box.
The unit is connected as a BDC and vampire succeeds in extracting accounts on
the NT box but only those which match the UNIX password parameters e.g.
lower case and staring with a letter.
Unfortunately, there are about 500 NT accounts that are witrh four digit
numbers or are capitalised.
I used a spreadsheet to drop the usernames to lower case and put an l in from
the numerical usernames to get them to work on Linux.
I have generated an smbusers file mapping the nam,es across in the form:
linux name = nt name
l1000 = 1000
l1001 = ...........
fred = FRED
but when vampire ruins it doesn't seem to see the usermap file. I have the
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
in smb.conf and vampire does everything it should other than these accounts.
Any ideas please?
