OK.  I am using the cvs HEAD from this morning and I found a problem with
the way smbd deals with the smbpasswd database.  If a username is in the
smbpasswd file but *NOT* in the unix passwd file it reports an error that
the smbpasswd database is corrupt and will not let the user login.  I
*THINK* this only occurs to users listed AFTER the "problem" in the
smbpasswd file.  I don't think previous alpha versions worked the same

I have removed the offending entry in smbpasswd and my users can login
