[Samba] More Random Behaviour

Okay, I'm starting to face professional ridicule at work over this. A 
Samba install should take a couple of days, I've been at it... far to long now.

When this started I chased the problem in all the wrong directions. I 
thought it was this environment. Now I don't think so.

I have Samba 3.0.14a installed on an AIX 5.2 server.
I had it running (not the way I wanted, but running). Then, for no 
reason, and with NO changes made, it started to deny me access to my 
home directory. FOR NO REASON. I had not changed anything.

I've been fighting just that kind of random failures for the past 
couple of weeks.
The logs are pretty much usless. Even at log level 10, it only shows 
that it denied access, and gives idiot reasons like "user not found" 
or some such.

I'm now down-reving to 3.0.12 . I've installed that version in other 
places with good result, I'm hoping it will correct the issues here. 
I can't go up-rev to 3.0.20 because the build fails (unless someone 
has a solution for THAT problem...).

Maybe it will also magically correct the other authentication issues 
that I shouldn't be having too..
