Hmmm, this is interesting. If it happens again, it would be interesting if
you can grab a trace of the packets exchanged when you try to log on.
I solved my problem by deleting my profiles up on the server, and then
logging off, which wrote a new (old) set of profiles, and the next time I
logged back on, everything seemed OK.
I suspect that my problem was due to the SID of my Samba server changing
and not matching the SID stored in NTUSER.DAT, which controls access.
Wish I had a tool that could read registry files under UNIX.
