Actually in this case userPrincipalName and sAMAccountname are different.
Is it possible that Samba only displays the sAMAccountname?
Also if those differ, is it possible that Samba will have problem
authenticating against AD using win2k name of the user?
On current version of samba that's whats happening.
Issue is when win2k and pre-win2k names are different Samba is unable to
authenticate the user ( when you try DOMAIN\win2kname )
DOMAIN\pre-win2k user is authenticated but not found in valid users list and
hence will be denied access to the share.

In effect when win2k and pre-win2k names differ user can not mount the share
using DOMAIn\win2k or DOMAIN\pre-win2k names.
