[Samba] Vista password being rejected on share security mode

I'm using Windows Vista Enterprise and also am having great difficulty
with security = share and 3.0.23d (as well as 3.0.11 and 3.0.14a).  It
seems as though Vista will randomly, occasionally work with it, but in
general it just won't work at all.  I wish I had your problem of a 10
second connection delay, far better than no connection at all.  Did you
have to do anything special to get it working, albiet with the 10 second

Subject: [Samba] Vista password being rejected on share security mode

I'm working on trying to get Samba 3.0.23c to work with Vista and I've
run into a snag.  If a share is set up for security = share, and
protected with a password, when I try to mount the share using
Start->Run->\\server\share,  the password is rejected by Samba for about
the first 10 seconds, but after that, it lets me in.  I've tried all the
common suggestions such as changing NTLMV2 on the Vista system without

I've looked high and low on the Internet and have not found a mention of
this problem.  The smb.conf file looks like this:
