I have a similar problem. Note that when I reverted to previous version,
the previous version could no longer write what it needed to smbpasswd.
While trying to get the new version running I had set both user and machine
passwords. I suspect that the smbpasswd format has changed ???

This could spell real problems for someone in a production situation ! The
only way to get going with 'old' version (earlier this month) was to delete
my smbpasswd file and create a new one.

I'll try and confirm that latter today (time ???) but people should be
carefull about cvs'ing. Maybe backup ~/private/smbpasswd first ??
