I did add users to the smbpasswd database (doing grep -i newuser
/usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd turned them up fine) and changed their
password, still no joy.
I did eventauuly get it all working by stopping the Samba server, removing
the secrets.tdb file, restarting Samba and then rejoining the domain
controlled computers to the domain. Luckily I have only about a dozen
machines that are domain controlled, so it wasnt too much of a problem!

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
