As far as I remember, SWAT uses the passwd database, rather than the 
smbpasswd database, although don't quote me on that, so you could try just 
using your unix password instead of the smb password, which on some 
machines are not the same.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
