OK - I think this is an introduced bug in the authentication.
Following the logic through on an old version of smbd/reply.c the
logic goes something like this:

 - look up user in password database
 - if it isn't there look up domain\user in password database
 - check domain password against *original* username (i.e without
   the domain prefix)

I think the last step was inadvertently changed.

Just a quick note, it's much easier to read the debugs if you set
'debug timestamp = no' in the smb.conf file.  That way you get
rid of half the lines in the file.
