yes, secuirty=server is not a good option, it keeps your auth connection
even after auth is done, so thats the reason prob after a while password
serer was rejecting users,
you should monitor your windows password server as to what it is doing

security=SERVER is fraught with troubles...
have you considered using security=DOMAIN?

the interesting part of the transactionis higher in the log i think
security=SERVER is tried first then 
falls through to smbpasswd if there is some problem.
all I'm seeing is the part after falling through to smbpasswd (which
does not exist in your case)
