Now that is the weird thing, The windows clients are also connecting
with the same details. There is now domain controller on this network.
Everybody connect to a DHCP server that the Router manages, and thus I
have a browse master war in my network, but that is another problem. 

So far I can figure, the windows clients don't have the same gid's as
Linux, and thus don't have the same problem. I am just not sure how
windows figures that it should use the login user to save files.
