Try something more recent than 2.0.0? Not that I know of any bugs in
2.0.0 (but if that version was perfect why release anything after it :)

What do you connect from? If NT4SP3+ you need encrypted passwords or tell
the NT to use unencrypted. Well, you are of course using smbclient to test
from localhost, so that can't be it.

I believe someone mentioned some problems with copying one installation
from one machine to another. Something to do with the SHARE_MEM_FILE in
/usr/local/samba/var/locks/  ?

Are you trying to run a 2.6 binary on the 2.5.1? Don't know if/why that
would cause problems but I guess it could ...

Sorry, that's the best my tired brain is capable of right now.
