2.2.6pre2, the one that's delivered in the package 
samba-xxx-2.2.6-1.0.pre2.2mdk,  but I'm going to upgrade in a few days.
The (recompiled) kernel version is 2.4.19

"culprit" for such a strange behaviour.
I think I have to take a look in /etc/security/msec/security.conf 
(and/or) /var/lib/msec/security.conf  and try to understand

I'll access that machine on tuesday morning so there's some day to wait 
but I decided to test smb.conf with another Linux distribution at home 
in a couple of hours
