Thanks Andrew.

I was actually under the (faulty) impression that --with-ssl was meant for SWAT.

Since it isn't, could you point me to instructions for enabling swat to use ssl?  Is it possible?

Thank you.

This is the purpose of Winbind (except the home directory part, which pam_mkhomedir is supposed to do), as I understand it.  Something between winbind and pam is failing since the connecting user gets authenticated as guest rather than an actual user.

SSL support is being removed in Samba 3.0, and is unsupported in 2.2.  
While this is probably unrelated to your problem, don't make you life
more difficult than it needs to be.  No Microsoft client supports SMB
over SSL.
