[Samba] Got user? no...

Hey all, I was just picking around through the logs trying to keep up on 
the state of things and I found an entry that looks like this:

# tail -f /var/log/samba/				(biggie)
[2009/11/18 22:36:15, 3] libsmb/ntlmssp.c:ntlmssp_server_auth(739)
   Got user=[] domain=[] workstation=[BIGGIE] len1=1 len2=0

This is a samba server with an ldap back-end. The machine has been added 
to the domain and appears to be working just fine.

Out of curiosity, I can't seem to figure out why workstation is 
populated with the correct hostname (BIGGIE) while 'Got user' and 
'domain' are not. What could be the cause of this?

If anyone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Todd E Thomas
