[Samba] "PANIC: failed to set gid" on mipsel

I just compiled Samba 3.0.21a for Linux/mipsel/uclibc.
When I want to start smbd, it fails:
[2006/01/19 12:29:09, 0] lib/util_sec.c:assert_gid(113)
Failed to set gid privileges to (-1,65534) now set to (0,0) uid=(0,0)
[2006/01/19 12:29:09, 0] lib/util.c:smb_panic2(1554)
PANIC: failed to set gid
The only way to start smbd is to put this into smb.conf:
guest account = root
But I'm not sure if it's a great idea.
smbd doesn't start with guest account set to nobody.
I have that user in /etc/passwd and /etc/group though:
root at OpenWrt# cat /etc/passwd
root at OpenWrt:/tmp/log/samba# cat /etc/group
I've checked the archives, there were similar errors, but mostly when
user wanted to change the password on Samba 2.x.
Any ideas why can't I start smbd when "guest account = nobody"?
