Not a sausage.  There wasn't a single packet from the XP machine or the
samba server that went to the other server during either a successful
login or a problematic one.

Any other ideas?  I'm fresh out.  Did you look at the log files I provided
in the original message?  I'm afraid I don't know them well enough to
notice if something is missing.
