I looked at both traces, and both manifest the same symptoms:

1. The client connects to the Samba server and sets up a NetBIOS session
2. The client sends a NegProt request and the server sends back a response
3. The client disconnects.

It looks like the client does not like the negprot response at all.  

You may have already told me, but what version of NT 4.0 are you running?

Has anyone else seen cases where an NT client disconnects after the NegProt
response because it does not like the response?
