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.
