Yep, I'm the reporter of bug 4677, hadn't seen 4782 but it does look
like the same thing.  A third similiar bug I have entered is 4674 where
I eventually discovered I can't connect with smbclient when the users
password is greater than 8 characters.  4674 is also on Sparc Solaris.
I haven't tried any of it on x86 Solaris, my hunch would be the same
problem exists there too.
