Intermittent logon failures

Samba 1.9.17p2 running on SPARC 4 Solaris 2.5.
Windows 95 clients.
For some time now I have been hearing reports of users not
being able to logon to the domain--but I've never seen it
happen myself, and I never do anything to fix it. It's
just this annoying problem that doesn't happen often enough
for me to ever see or track down.
Today, FINALLY, I tried logging into a machine and it did it
to *me* and I FINALLY put together that a weird error message
I had been seeing was Samba telling me there really was
a problem AND it was the problem people were telling me about.
Sure sure, it all makes sense NOW, but the error message:
smbd: reject invalid user nobody
never clicked for me. But that's what I'm seeing. The
Windows 95 box says "The network could not validate you. Seek
It started working again before I was able to get a better
debug log on it. I'm going to add a little code in user_ok()
to get some more info when it does.
Any ideas anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
