Samba 2.999+3.0.alpha21-3 User Dissapears

Hello All!

After users began complaining about not being able to access some
network resources, I noticed that some of the users are missing in samba
using command:

pdbedit -lv 

Soooo, I retry and create that user again using command:

smbpasswd -a hisusername

This does not add the user.  So instead I use command:

pdbedit -a -u hisusername

and this also does not work.

So I look in /var/log/samba and look at smbd.log.  Nothing there tells
me anything special under debug = 3 except that this user isn't mapped.

I don't know how these users got removed and why.  I've also tried:

smbpasswd -e hisusername

to enable but this produces no positive results.

I don't know what is left to try as I'm all out of ideas.

Any help much appreciated!
