Are you using plaintext passwords? Are your password all-lowercase? If
not, they you might need to up the 'password level' so samba's built in
password-cracker can find the right one.
Does your OS have limitations on password length?
In any case, move across to encrypted passwords as soon as possible - it
gets around all sorts of weird and wonderful issues like this.
