Jason, I keep saying this, if you don't see entries in the log that
indicates that the parameters in question are being processed, then that is
your problem !

I've put one of my (production) machines into debug 5 to show you what is
happening :
[2000/11/27 08:56:52, 3] param/loadparm.c:lp_add_ipc(1516)
  adding IPC service
[2000/11/27 08:56:52, 3] param/loadparm.c:lp_add_printer(1551)
  adding printer service lj5_raw
  doing parameter security = domain
  doing parameter status = yes
  doing parameter workgroup = {suppressed}
  doing parameter printcap name = /etc/printcap
  doing parameter password server = {suppressed}
  doing parameter wins server = {suppressed}
  doing parameter encrypt passwords = yes

If you see any parameters being processed ('doing parameter..') then you
should see the 'security = domain' etc lines. Is there some error indicated
there ? 

If you see any parameters being processed but don't see 'security = domain'
amoung them, then that is your problem, the parameter is not in the config
file that samba is reading !

These 'doing parameter' lines appear whenever a connection is made or when
the samba server starts up. So all you have to do (assuming the system is
only be used for testing) is to stop samba, add debug = 5 to just under
[global], remove the log files and start samba. Better make sure there is
no other debug statement in the rest of the conf file.

Please do this and send me the resulting log before it gets too big. Be
kind to other list users, don't post it to the entire list, send it to me
and as plain text please.
