[Samba] Everything but [Homes] works

Based on suggestions here and elsewhere I've made some changes. First
comment = Home Directory
path = /export/private/%U
hide dot files = yes
valid users = %S
write list = %S
read only = yes
browseable = No
I also changed the mapping in smbuser:
stephen = TOTALFLOOD/scarville
I can now see and open all the shares which is the good news. The bad
news is that my home directory cannot be accessed by scarville -- my
windows username -- but only by my Unix username stephen. If I try to
open it as //file-cabinet/scarville:
2006/05/15 06:44:55, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(798)
pellucidar (192.168.124.232) couldn't find service scarville
but as //file-cabinet/stephen it works.
So, apparently, a logon script entry like "net use z: \\file-cabinet\%u"
will not work unless the UNIX and windows usernames are the same.
There are only a few persons in the shop whose UNIX and Windows username
are different but, unfortunately, one of them is the VP of IT who will
bitch incessantly about the "inconvenience". Not entirely unjustified
since it worked under 2.2.
Maybe I should just downgrade...
