There's at least one other entry that needs to go in this table:

  encrypt passwords = Y          Y                Y/N                  Y/N

An easy way of doing this is to add the 'server role' parameter and keep
all the other random browsing related ones.  By setting 'server role'
you are implicitly setting the values of other ones as per the above

You may have to worry about the order of the parameters in the smb.conf
file.  Or maybe not.
