Samba 2.0.6 on SCO Unix 5.0.5

We seem to be experiencing some problems with Samba 2.0.6 on SCO Unix
Openserver 5.0.5.

I'm wondering if anybody else is using this version of Samba on SCO. I used
an older version 3 years ago and rarely had a problem. I just installed this
version and am experiencing an annoying problem:

We use windows 95, 98 and NT4.0 (SP3/SP6) workstations. All passwords are
set to clear text. The samba server is not set as a domain controller, so
we're using the  Unix passwords to accept/reject users. smbd and nmbd are
started at boot time, not with inetd.

The problem mainly occurs with windows 95 machines: all users are repeatedly
prompted for their passwords: it does not appear to be kept in the cache.
Occasionally the user will also be refused writing to a file that he/she
just wrote to ??

The problem also occurs with windows NT systems, although in a slightly
different fashion. I do keep a share mounted permanently on the NT machine,
so it remembers the password there - once I've entered it when I logon to
NT. However, I will experience problems with writing files, or occasionally
evern reading files from the NT server. In certain cases, my whole NT system
appears to lock-up. If I check the Unix/Samba server, I find that a whole
bunch of smbd processes were started up, as if the connection was attempted

Right around that same time, I see the following error in the log for that
  32 bit error packet at line 1396 cmd=160 (SMBnttrans) eclass=c0000120
Unknown error (32,49152)]

Is the error related? What can I do about it?
Is anyone else using this version of Samba on SCO Openserver 5.0.5?
What is the latest Samba release you are using, without any problems, on

Thanks a bunch
