Connecting to [homes] ... yes, another password question

First, I have to commend O'Reilly for publishing their excellent book on line.
After reading through Chapter 7 yesterday, I was finally able to get Samba up
and running on my NT domain using encrypted passwords and domain security.
Naturally, something broke yesterday around the time wins was set.
In earlier versions of smb.conf, I configured [homes] so that I could connect
as my linux username from my NT (actually, W2K) box and be automatically
dropped into my home directory. Worked great, and I could read it fine.
So, last night after adding the wins server line (I think), I disconnected my
share mapping to my home directory and tried to reconnect. The error message is
(W2K side): "The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different
user name and password. To connect using a different user name and password,
first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share".
Just to verify this, I disconnected my data drive and reconnected. This worked
fine, no password prompt.
So, next I had a look at my smbpasswd file, and used smbpasswd to synchronize
my smb password with my linux user account password. Note: this password is
different from my password on my NT account. So, to resolve that potential
discrepancy, I ran smbpasswd and changed the password to match my NT password,
then waited 15 minutes or so for good measure, and retried the connection. This
also did not work, and generated the same error message.
A (possibly) related issue: I set logging to go to both samba.log and syslogs.
Hence, logcheck reports this every 15 minutes (hmmm...the browse refresh
