Hmm just downgrade to samba 300, that did the trick for me.. (to bad coz' i 
wanted to run the l8test smba)
gues that some bug-fix didn't work out after 300 version.
i saw multiple people having the same problem, so i gues they work on it.
and fix it before the 302 release ??

till then, 300 works 99%.
