Should set this to 'no'

For debugging I would try a couple of things...

- run smbstatus and look at what shares the machine is 
connected to and as what user.

- If that doesn't work, use either tcpdump (or snoop on Solaris
machines) and dump the network traffic during a logoin to a 
raw file file.  We can then see what's going on between the 
NT client and the PDC.
