VMware has for many years been the tool of choice for Samba developers.
I only just moved from that to KVM, but neither should be causing that
kind of issue.  

I just tested this with MMC from WinXP, and it works for me.  Have you
made a clean build?  Have you done a provision recently?  Is there
anything interesting in the logs, on in a wireshark trace?
