If you still have the broken server.cfg could you check what was
different.  I'd like to find out if it was only one config value that
changed or if you were somehow given a default server.cfg.

The package install scripts for ntlmaps read your current configuration
and store values in debconf, so if there is a difference one of the
values may not be getting stored properly.
