If it starts working after a time it's not likely to be
an encrypted password issue.

What method of Samba authentication is the customer using ?

(ie. what is the "security=" line set to in the smb.conf).

You can set the Samba debug log level higher by hitting a
running smbd with a SIGUSR1, or start it with the -d<number>
option. Level 10 is usually the highest useful level.
