I'm not 100% sure (I've only ever used security = user), but I believe 
you can still have map to guest = bad user, they may still be prompted 
for a username and password but they could put in almost anything 
(except a valid username) and they would be granted access.

The man page only says that you map to guest isn't valid with security = 
share, which suggests that it should work when you are authing against 
another server.
