[Samba] Slow access time and no access to security=user

I have been using security=share and guest account = ftp and guest = ok in
most of my smb.conf since I am just a home user.
I decided to make security = user and set up one password protected share,
encrypt passwords = yes
netbios name = HAMMER2
interfaces = 192.168.0.2
security = user
log level = 3
guest account = ftp
strict sync = Yes
comment = Home
path = /mnt/hda4/jlh
read only = no
comment = All Files
path = /
read only = Yes
guest ok = Yes
Everything goes fine with:
smbmount //hammer2/jlh /mnt/NetWork/HAMMER2/jlh -o username=jlh password=aaaa
The share jlh is mounted. When I cd into that share and run ls, there is a
long delay (perhaps 15 seconds) before the files will list.
With KDE (kfm), I cannot list any files in directory /mnt/hda4/jlh. kfm complains the
directory is locked.
However, if I mount share AllFiles as a guest user, I can easily list
directory /mnt/hda/jlh quickly and easily with ls and with kde.
I have run smbpasswd on this server and entered in the proper user name and
Here are some things from my log. It looks like jlh is getting registered as
a guest user.
Defaulting to Lanman password for jlh
Registered username jlh for guest access <---seems odd
Transaction 3 of length 69
switch message SMBtconX (pid 28729)
setting sec ctx (0, 0) - sec_ctx_stack_ndx = 0
check_access: no hostnames in host allow/deny list.
Allowed connection from (192.168.0.6)
authorise_login: ACCEPTED: guest account and guest ok (ftp)
Any insight appreciated.
