Yep we have a similar set of problems^H^H^H^H^ opportunities :-) 

I opted to do it 'the other way around' set the smb.conf to use server
mode. This means the NT box acts as the source-of-authority for the passwds.
This means you don't have an smbpasswd file to worry about. It does however
have it's own set of problems, I was thinking of switching to your model :-)
