The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 4140
Samba PDC does not complain about a user with the same name as the domain

Windows XP gets greatly confused by this (trying to do things like add the user to local security groups in XP, or to view the user's effective permissions for a file in XP produce strange behavior). While I understand that this is probably XP's fault, it would be nice if a Samba PDC emitted a syslog warning or something in this case.
