One slight modification to this.  Make sure that the smbpasswd file exists,
and has entries for those people who have entries in the /etc/passwd file.
(Make the smbpasswd file with the mksmbpasswd.sh script to start.)  If an
entry doesn't exist in the smbpasswd file and exists in the passwd file, the
server will not create the smbpasswd file entry.

fyi the way that this will be used is to have:

encrypted passwords = no
update encrypted = yes

for a few days, have everyone log in with their clear-text password, and
a private/smbpasswd file will automatically be generated.

then switch to

encrypted passwords = yes
update encrypted = no

and voila.

if you were feeling _really_ adventurous you could have:

include = smb.conf.%M

and have one file smb.conf.MACHINE_CT (clear-text for short)

encrypted passwords = no
update encrypted = yes

and another file smb.conf.MACHINE

with the other stuff in...
