I ended up presenting with Ubuntu Server 7.04 and their current Samba packages, which were at build 3.0.24-2ubuntu1.2_i386.

Upon returning from that conference, Debian Etch had been updated to 3.0.24-6etch4_i386, and a clean installation of Etch and those packages worked to perfection.

I have no idea what was up... and since I did a clean install (the previous Etch installation was nuked to hurry off to Ubuntu), possibly it was some Etch bug only if you first installed an earlier 
build of Samba, or, or, or...

Just glad to see that weirdness GONE! :-)
