I had a problem with samba 2.0.5a. It required that I upgrade
to a 2.2.x kernel. There was another problem that showed up on
the list about bad passwords. As you seem to have remade the
smbpasswd file, maybe try a 2.2.x kernel. The error I had in the
logs was a "cannot become user xxxxx" error followed by authentication
errors (bad user name/passwd).
