[Samba] Winbind success BUT blank root password

I have just gotten my samba machine, a SuSE 9.1
install, to work completely with my Win2k domain (in
my test network, anyway.)

However, after rebooting, I was unable to log into my
root account on the SuSE box.  In disgust, I tried to
login as root with no password.  Imagine my shock when
it worked.  Now, no matter how many times I reset my
root password, using passwd or SuSE's GUI tools, I can
only log into my root account with a blank password.

I'm guessing PAM is to blame, but I don't even know
where to start on this one.  Does anyone had any
