Hmmm. If Ubuntu default smb.conf includes "valid users = %S" *in the
[global] section*, this is definitely a bug. However, I really wonder
how it was introduced as the Debian package only has it in [homes].

So, indeed, I doubt this entry is a leftover from the original genuine
install of Ubuntu's samba package.
