I don't know what you mean here...
i understand password cache to be some registry location or flat file
that just stores the various passwords a user has used to access various
network resources. Think the .pwl files from win9x.
If you mean that your user is there when you run the local user manager
then (i hate to ask) but are you sure you've selected your domain in the
"log on to" dropdown?

samba doesn't care about who the user as long as that user 
exists in smbpasswd and has a valid password (ie it doesn't implement
any kind of checking about whether a user is allowd to log on from a
given workstation)

that means that samba is configured fine...

i'm curious to see the logs.
