One more tidbit of info..

I see this in the logs when I jack up the debugging level..

 resolve_hosts: Attempting host lookup for name

  PANIC: internal error

Note the attempt_netbios_session_request followed by the fault.

Why the problem?  This same install has worked fine for years and now
has a problem?  I'm convinced this is not a problem on the samba server
itself, but I'm not sure what to look for on the other side.

After upgrading to 2.2.3a from 2.2.2, we have a strange problem that's
happening.  When users try to map a drive, it asks for the username/password
even though we're using server authenticaiton.

There are lots of messages in the log.<machine name> files complaining
about not being able to open the passwd database

[2002/05/06 09:52:47, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:pdb_getsampwnam(1367)
  unable to open passdb database.
[2002/05/06 09:52:47, 0] passdb/pdb_smbpasswd.c:pdb_getsampwnam(1367)
  unable to open passdb database.

As far as I can tell from perusing the source, this is if you are 
using the smbpasswd files which we are not.  We are using server
authentication via a local PDC (win2k PDC, I believe).  So why 
is it trying to hit the smbpasswd file?

Any thoughts?
