Thank you for taking the time to respond and for everything you do for 

After "banging my head on the wall" for several days I wiped out the Linux 
system and started over. I setup the system like I had before and 
continued to have the same problem. After looking at the logs from the 
first attempt again (and again and again....) there was a clue about PAM 
being the problem. I have to admit that I didn't fully understand how PAM 
interacted with winbind and how CRUCIAL it's configuration was in the 
authentication process (even for enumerating shares). I poured over The 
Official Samba-3 HOWTO and Reference Guide (again) and followed it's lead 
to PAM configuration. I thought that I had done the same with the original 
configuration but apparently not. After my changes to PAM, miraculously 
things are working :O).
