My guess is you are using a version of Samba 2.0.x earlier
than 2.0.6. This is a known issue, fixed by that release (at
the latest, maybe earlier, I'd have to check the release logs).

Upgrading should fix it. If you're already using 2.0.6 or a
2.0.7preX release and you have this problem then I'd like
to know about it asap.
