Authentication problems with 1.9.17p4

I have tried installing p4 recently only to find that all my older 95
(pre OSR1 or whatever it was called) and WfWG clients can no longer
connect to any shares. I am using 'security = server' and the later 95
and all NT clients can connect. I have looked through the documentation
and can find no newer options that might affect my setup. Is there a bug
here or have I missed something obvious.

The last version that I can swear by as working correctly was 1.9.17p2.

An example extract from a level 3 log follows...
