Passwd case problem

I'm sure this is covered in some doc somewhere, but I have not been able
to find it. Anyways, I have 1.9.17 running on a SS10/Solaris 2.6. The
smb.conf is attached at the end of this message. 

Anyways, I need Samba to allow domain logons from Win95 clients, via the
NIS database on the Sun. We're not doing anything especially tricky, I
just want the users home directory to mount and for them to be able to
cancel their print jobs. 

Everything works great IF the user has an all lowercase passwd, 
e.g. 'passwd'. Numeric characters are also fine.

However, if the passwd contains ANY uppercase characters, 
e.g. 'PassWd', I get "The domain passwd you supplied is not correct or
your access to the logon server has been refused". This fails from both
Win95 OSRA and OSRB clients.

Any ideas or pointers to the docs which I missed would be appreciated.
