[Samba] Authentification problem with SAMBA 3.0.7

Meanwhile I could find out where the problem is, but I need help for fixing.

While Linux machines have no problem with mounting a SAMBA 3.0.7 server with
every possible username (existing on the samba server), I always get the
following error when I try to do that from a windows-client.

[2004/12/14 15:21:52, 0] auth/pampass.c:smb_pam_passcheck(810)
  smb_pam_passcheck: PAM: smb_pam_auth failed - Rejecting User wewerka !

The samba server is configured to use no password encryption, and the windows
machines have the correct entry for enabling plaintext passwords in their
registry. Also, there is no domain controller configured, the network is a
trivial "workgroup".

That the Windows-Machines are working correctly is assured, because they can
connect to the second SAMBA server, running samba 2.0.6, also using no
password encryption.

If somebody could help me getting the authentification running, please.
Security is absolutely not required.
