Run the command pdbedit -Lv username for each of the users in  
question, and verify the the domain listerd for the username is  
correct. I've seen this occur when the users are created under one  
domain name, and then the domain name (in the smb.conf) is changed  
afterward. If that's the case change the users domain using pdbedit -- 
domain=newdomainnamehere username
