[CentOS] Cannot mount samba shares

quick(?) question: Has anybody seen that problem below? More important
question: Did anybody solve that?
This is my smb.conf (well, only the most important parts):
workgroup = FOOBAR
server string = My Server
map to guest = Bad User
preferred master = No
local master = No
domain master = No
dns proxy = No
comment = Audio-Video-Imports
path = /local/mir/import/on3
force group = users
read only = No
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775
guest ok = Yes
The path has:
drwxrwxr-x 3 mir users 4096 10. Dez 16:35 /local/mir/import/on3/
Meaning: group users and user mir are allowed to write in there. Works
fine from windows clients. Guest user gets mapped to "nobody".
Doesn't work from linux:
[root at shutdown ~]# mount -t cifs -o user=nobody,guest //mir-qs/on3 /mnt/tmp/
mount error 13 = Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
root at mir-qs:~# uname -a ; rpm -q samba
Linux mir-qs.br.de 2.6.9-78.0.8.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Nov 19 20:05:04 EST
2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Machine is up to date.
Error message on the server is
make_connection: connection to on3 denied due to security descriptor.
Googling around led me to the belief that someone fooled around with
srvmgr.exe from a windows machine and that I should remove
/var/cache/samba/share_info.tdb and restart samba. Which doesn't work.
Now if I take out the "force group = users" everything works as
expected. Except that I cannot write in this share - nobody isn't in the
I don't want to add nobody to the group users, nor can I go and change
anything on that server regarding users and groups in the file system.
Ah yes, smbclient works fine, but I really do not want to use that
