One thing I noticed on the pocketpc-samba capture; the pocketpc is
indicating DOS error codes w/Extended security (which I didn't know
was valid -- I thought extended security implied NT error codes). 
Samba's reply indicates it is using NT error codes.

If Samba is making the same assumption I did (extended security ->
client must support NT error codes) this could be the reason for the
failed negotiation.
