SAMBA Password problems

    When I connect to SWAT from an NT workstation as a user and try to
change my password, I get the following error:
machine rejected the tconX on the IPC$ share. Error was : ERRSRV -
ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a Tree Connect or Session
Setup are invalid.). 
    I can log on as root and change a users password fine, but as a user I
get an error every time. I did find a FAQ out here and checked the following

Firstly, make sure that you do NOT have "bind interfaces only = yes" in your
smb.conf file.

Secondly, if you have specified "hosts allow =" please
to it "localhost". ie: hosts allow = 127.


    I have these things set, but it doesn't help. Any suggestions?
