Yup I have those on the password file.. I'm able to logon from a Linux client 
when the username is either 'agi', 'Alec' or 'Alec Joseph'. On the Windows 
client, however, only the 'agi' (which is the Unix username) will work.

I stumbled upon this only because 'wing' asked me if she can use 'Jo Annelyn' 
instead. I thought I would be straightforward to use the username mapping 
because on the Linux workstation it just works...

I'm clearly missing something...
