Linux -> Appleshare IP 6.2 failure using smbclient

I am trying to speak smb from my Redhat Linux box using Samba 2.0.5a to
an Appleshare IP 6.2 server using smbclient. I know SMB is working,
because I can communicate from Win98 workstations, and from Macintoshes
using DAVE 2.1 from Thursby Systems.
Has anyone been able to use smbclient on Redhat 6.0 with Samba 2.0.5a to
be able to talk to an Appleshare IP 6.2 server?
I have to believe that this would be a very desirable thing for many
people to do, and after debugging this problem for days, I think without
Appleshare IP source, I can't go any farther. Does anyone know how to get
in touch with the Appleshare IP developers? I would think they would be
interested in making this work too and I'm willing to help debug this.
It looks like there is a failure in the very early part of the protocol
initialization. It seems as though the Appleshare server sent a null
response, and confused smbclient.
Here's an example session with some debugging.
Any help or magic would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
