I am currently running into a very weird issue and I was wondering if anyone else has seen this before.

Samba 3.6.8 running on a Solaris 10u5 server.
The SAMBA share is accessed through Windows 7 clients.

A username with the word "power" can't connect. It gives an error of "Invalid username and or bad password"
We modify the user account with different variations of his username using the word "power" and it still gives the same error.

We remove the word "power" from his username and it works fine.

We use SAMBA 3.5.10 on a RHEL server and it accepts the username with "power" in it with no issues.

Has anyone seen this issue before?
