Can't set Workgroup name / samba-tng-alpha-2.6

      I have a problem with the workgroup name.  If I name my workgroup 
anything other than "LARS", I'll get the following error for any user 
that tries to access samba.

SMB LM/NT Password did not match!
Rejecting user 'ljames': authentication failed

     If I add "workgroup = lars" to my smb.conf file, any user can 
access samba without problems.

     I'm using samba-tng-alpha-2.6.
     Thanks in advance for anyone that has any suggestions or comments.
