[Samba] user root is not accepted anymore

we're using samba 2.2.1.a on a SuSE Linux box.
After changing the root password, root is not able to login anymore.
Neither with the new nor the old password.
We reinstalled samba and changed every file in /etc/samba.
Every other user is accepted.
We never used smbpasswd.

Now we're a little bit confused because we changed the root's password on a identical machine and do not have the same effect.
Is there anybody who has got an idea?

Regards, Rudi
