I'm trying to upgrade from Samba 3.0.14a to 3.0.23b.  Using the exact
same config file that I did in the older version, and using the exact
same share directory and file permissions as I did with the old
version, a share that I used to be able to access now returns:

     tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

When I try to connect to my home directory that's shared on the fly, I
can get in just fine.  I'm STUCK.  How do I figure out what's wrong?
