Usually I would've though that this would only happen when you connect
as a guest - there's a 'map to guest' option that lets you change the
user Samba uses, I usually set it to 'nobody'.

As an alternative you could just create the Samba user, but rather than
choosing a difficult password just make it so the user can't log in,
like the user 'nobody'.
