I thought 500 was the RID for the Administrator account.  Could be wrong
though.  I'm sure it is one of the built-in accounts.  Are the users
specified in the 'domain admins =' parameter in smb.conf by chance?

Interesting, though.  I think one of my NT 4.0 boxes is having the same
problem.  I haven't traced it to the user RID yet but the symptoms are
similar to the ones you descibe.
