[Samba] Lagging failed login attempts

Samba 2.2.8a on Suse 8 (part of SLOX system - no I can't upgrade 
until Suse upgrade the system)
Windows XP Pro clients

Are failed client logins on the XP clients logged anywhere ?
How about non-domain member clients accessing shares ?

I've been asked to provide a log of failed login attempts with a view 
to spotting break-in attempts (apparently auditors like that sort of 
thing). There doesn't seem to be anything useful in syslog, log.smbd, 
or log.nmbd.
