I had similar problems upgrading from 3.0.22 to 3.0.23a. Try rebooting your 
client machines, in my case Windows clients could connect to Samba again 
after a reboot. Later I returned to 3.0.22 due to various issues with 
3.0.23a. Recently I did upgrade to 3.0.23c and it seems to work well. My 
advise, don't use 3.0.23a (at least on Fedora), either stay with 3.0.22 or 
go for 3.0.23c.

   I have just performed a yum update on my Fedora 5 machine, which I think 
included a samba update, and I cannot connect from WinXP to the shares 
defined on Fedora. When I select the samba server from WIndowsXP, a dialog 
box prompts for the userid and password. When userid and password are 
entered the dialog box just redisplays and I am not logged on, no matter how 
many time I try.

I have tried rolling back to samba 3.0.10 but there are too many 
dependencies of samba on other products to do that reliably.

I include below my yum.log messages, smb.conf file and the client.log
