I am using 18p8 on a number of HP-UX 10.20 systems.  Although everything
seems to be operating [ie nt / 95 clients log in and access shares], my
log files are littered with the following:

get_smbpwd_entry: malformed password entry (uid not number)

I have just recently switched to encrypted passwords to support a number
of new NT boxes that are being installed.  The 95 clients I have still
work the same as they ever have, but access from the NT clients is WAY
slow.  These NT boxes are PII-350, so machine speed shouldn't be a
factor.  I am wondering if the log file error has anything to do with
it...  anyone have any ideas?
