[Samba] Dave clients on OS 9 not able to logon to Samba 3

Sorry for the lengthy post,

Have a mix of OS 9 Macs, OS X, and Win XP clients which need to connect to
a Samba server.  Been using Dave 4.0.2 on the OS 9 machines, native smb
client on OS X ones.  We have one RedHat 7.3 server, with samba-2.2.7, from
rpm, which works fine.  Now I'm building a RedHat 9 server, with Samba
3.0.13-1, compiled from source.  But can't get the Dave clients on the OS 9
Macs to connect.  They're getting:
Dave via "Chooser": The remote server reported an error.  Your connection
was rejected because of an invalid username or password.  Error #1/-5000
Dave - Mount manually:  DAVE Client driver error.  Error #6/-128
Dave client:  An error occurred while browsing.  Cannot connect to
"Servername".  The system cannot open the file.

Upgraded a Dave client to latest release, 5.1, but essentially getting the
same messages.  These Dave clients work with samba-2.2.7a-8.9.0 on the new
RH 9 box, but somewhere between samba-2.2.7 and samba-3.0.13, Dave stopped
working.  Guess I should mention that samba is using pam.d, which points to
a radius server, for authentication.  That's why I've got "encrypt
passwords = no" below in the config.  And Dave 5.1 does have an option to
not encrypt passwords either.  Again, this all works in samba 2.2.x, but
not when I go to samba 3.  All on the same machine.  ACL's, smb.conf, etc.
The only thing that's changing is the version of samba.  Nothing helpful in
the logs either.

I know this isn't Dave support (thursby.com), but I'm hoping someone may
have dealt with this issue, and can point me in the right direction.  I'm
kinda new to samba 3, so perhaps something changed I'm still not aware of.
