[Samba] Unable to login to the domain

Hello everyone.

I am having a problem loging into my domain (although I can log into my 
shares successfully). Here are the details.

Servers and applications:
PDC Server:
	Domain: ACME
	Samba: 3.0.10-1 (Debian)
	smbldap-tools: 0.8.5-3
	Distribution: Debian, running kernel 2.6.8-1-k7
	IP Address:

Backend Database: ldap (OpenLdap)

Windows Machine:
	OS: Win2K
	Name: naddaf2
	IP Address:
	username used in creating the log files: "maunelie"

I have been able to add my windows machine (i.e. naddaf2) to the ACME 
domain (and a "naddaf2$" entry was added to my ldap backend as a 
result). After cleaning up my /var/log/samba/ content, I started my 
samba and tried to login from naddaf2 to my domain and it created a 
number of log files that I have zipped in a 20K file and have put here 
for your access:

Looking at the naddaf2 log file (included in the above zipped file), it 
seems that logon has gone through successfully, but what I see on my 
windows box is the standard error:

"The system could not log you in. make sure your User name and Domain
are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must
be typed using the correct case. Make sure Caps Lock is not accidently

I have also put my smb.conf file there: 
http://naddaf.net:82/samba/smb.conf . If there is any other information 
I can add, please let me know.

I appreciate it if someone could help me fix the issue.

Many thanks,
Ali Naddaf.
