Did you try the other options for 'map to guest'?

For example, "Bad User" implies that if connecting as an *existing* 
user, that maptoguest will never apply.

said manpage says "Bad Uid" was the default behavior of Samba 2.x 
releases. but you already knew that, right?  (-:  Did you you try
map to guest = Bad Uid

Now what does the samba logs say when trying to connect (and it fails)? 
  I see no reference to any "public" share in the previous logs you posted.
