Now that is weird, it is usually 'getent password' returns nothing ;-)

Just one thought, because '\n' is a linefeed, it might just be that, so try <getent password 'GIBB\nprice'>

Nothing. I think maybe a fresh install Windows style is needed?

Does it affect the use of the computer ?

Can the user login, or connect to a share ?

if root creates a file, can its ownership be changed with 'chown' ?

IF everything else is working, I would tend to ignore it, the OS definitely knows your user.

I would be a lot more concerned if this was happening with every user, you could also try upgrading Samba to 4.9.x
