We had the same problem and it was caused by samba trying the user-password
in different manners (password, Password, PASSWORD, etc.) Since the PDC
refused the first three attempts and our policy is to lock any account after
three bad logon-attempts, accounts were locked sometimes.

I can't remember exactly how we solved the problem but the shade of a
"password level" parameter in smb.conf is in my mind.

Hope this helps,
