The problem is that when you tell NT5 that you support the NT SMB
calls, then it expects you to support the DCE/RPC calls as well.
1.9.18p10 didn't support these NT SMB's while 2.0 does but the 
DCE/RPC support is not completed.

The workaround is to set "nt smb support = no" in smb.conf.

Hope this helps,
