Sorry for bothering you Toomas, I just correct the smbpasswd entry with 
pdbedit and it now works. 

Could I have found this in some kind of documentation?

I have smbpasswd entry like following:
tsoome:1020:3040:1000:3001:[U          ]:blaah:blaah

I put some newlines to fit on line. the basic idea is that if there is
value in nis+, we will use it, if not, we will try to find default from
smb.conf. thisway we can use per user settings and system defaults....

btw: you may notice that dir_drive is H:, my personal feeling is that
there should be just H and : should be added by pdb code, but..... somehow
H: does not "feel" right....
