you haven't sent in your smb.conf file. i am assuming that you are using
"security = user".
have a look at the unix uid. have a look at your
/usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd file. for the specified user
(drobbins), is the smbpasswd smb_uid the same as the unix uid?
the answer is no, by the way.

where is the PAM module getting the unix uid from? have you compiled
samba with -DUSE_PAM?

not that it matters, but do you happen to know what those pre-compiled
binaries' options were? you need to check your smb and unix uids,
