Check your samba version according to this announcement:

quote from (samba.org)

(8th May, 2004) /Samba 3.0.4 and 2.2.9 Available for Download/

"The latest patch release of the 3.0 code base, Samba 3.0.4, is 
available for download in gzipped format 
<http://sambafr.idealx.org/samba/ftp/samba-3.0.4.tar.gz>. The GPG 
signature <http://sambafr.idealx.org/samba/ftp/samba-3.0.4.tar.asc> is 
for the uncompressed tarball. This is the latest stable release of 
Samba. This is the version that production Samba servers should be 
running for all current bug-fixes. There have been several issues fixed 
since the 3.0.3 release, the most visible of which is the problem with 
user password changes after applying the Microsoft security hotfix 
described in KB828741 to Windows NT 4.0/200x/XP clients. Please refer to 
the Release Notes 
<http://sambafr.idealx.org/samba/whatsnew/samba-3.0.4.html> for 
descriptions of the exact changes and new features."

Hope it helps.
