So all the non NT users have ###NOPASSWORD### in smbpasswd?  
This sounds strange to me so let me just ask again to make 
sure I understand what you ar saying.

- You created the smbpasswd file with 
  'cat /etc/passwd | > smbpasswd' or something 
  like this.
- The NT users set their LanMan and NT hashes using smbpasswd on
  the linux box.
- The WfWg users did nothing.

So just for fun, what happens when you do something like

      net use x: \\server\share /user:<WfWg username>

from and NT box?
