Ok, I'm assuming this is a newer version of samba? Can you tell us

Try adding -d 5 to the commandline, though I'll warn you you'll get a lot
of output to stderr.
Two issues I've seen recently is that certain interim versions of the code
have simply a broken net rpc shutdown that was fixed recently by Jerry,
and also that with WinXP, especially if you're ever using remote desktop,
the return code 1271 (0x4f7) comes back, which says that the system is
locked and can't be shutdown remotely except with the -f (force) flag.
