Rowland, that ignores the fact that all of my users other than this 
select group (5% maybe) on a certain client are working and working just 
fine.  Those same failing users work on windows XP and linux cifs.  And 
to shares even on win7 where the access is controlled via unix gid.

Further, removing those entries samba will have no idea what the unix id 
is to create a mapping, the path to the home directory.
