Username is invalid

We have the following situation: Samba 2.0.5 on Solaris 2.7
sparc, using encrypt passwords.

If the passwords on /etc/passwd and
/usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd are the 'same', the user
have access over swat and can claim a drive from the samba
server. Thats works fine. But if the user try to change the
password, on the server in a shell or with swat, the smb
daemon rejects the session.

on the client side:
machine rejected the session setup. Error was :
ERRSRV - ERRbadpw (Bad password - name/password pair in a
Tree Connect or
  Session Setup are invalid.).

in the smb.log:
[2000/04/10 13:53:08, 1] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(898)
  Username  is invalid on this system

But this user has full access.

Thanks in advance for any help.
