I gave a 2nd look to your smb.conf:
1) you use "encrypt passwords = yes" and then "encrypt passwords = no",
so that you use /etc/passwd and smbpasswd is ignored.
2) you use "log level = 0" so that samba doesn't log anything.

So, take out the "encrypt passwords = no" and "log level = 0" (or better
set 'log level = 3' until all is ok). See with "testparm" that there are
no errors and that you are really using encrypted passwords.
Then re-do the test, now log.smb should tell you something.
