Weird problem with smb 1.9.17p4 and p5

Overall environment is SunOS and Solaris 2.X machines running a mixture of
smb.1.9.17.p4 and p5.

This machine is a SunOS 4.1.3_U1 running smb.1.9.17p5. (debug level 3)

AAAA is Primary Domain Controller (NT4.0)
zotz is Win95 machine

security = server
password server = aaaa

>From log.zotz:

Does anybody know what would cause the "error packet at line 537 cmd=115
(SMBsesssetupX) eclass=2 ecode=2" error message above?  The user gets
asked for his password to make the connection and then he gets a "The
password is incorrect. Try again." error dialog.  "jimtest" is a
non-administrative account.  The connection works fine with users who
have administrator privileges on the NT servers.  The connections were all
working fine until the PDC started acting flaky and then died.  The PDC is
backup now, and the errors are still happening.  I am thinking that there is
a problem on the NT side of the house.  Our NT admin had just cleaned out
a bunch of old accounts and groups that he though we didn't need anymore, prior
to the problems starting.  Any ideas on where we should look for problems.
