[Samba] 3.0.25 smbclient problem

I updated all my servers to 3.0.25 early this morning.  Everything seems
100% A-OK except for the most surprising thing, all my Windows and
Macintosh clients, no problems.  But I'm having severe difficulty with
the 3.0.25 smbclient.  If I use smbclient from 3.0.24 it too can connect
to my 3.0.25 servers without issue.

Its bizarre.  Before I go into it let me say, I've got some 3.0.25
servers in share level security and the 3.0.25 smbclient CAN connect to
those just fine.

But, I've got other servers using security = domain and those are the
ones 3.0.25 smbclient can't connect to, in general.  Its very very
strange because I've tested with 4 seperate userids.  3 of the userids
will not work using 3.0.25 client period, 1 of them always will, I can't
put my finger on anything that might be different about that 1 userid
but its consistent even to different servers.  Again, using 3.0.24
client I can connect to any of the 3.0.25 servers using any of the 4
userids no problem.

So, is this a known issue or should I file a bug report, or any
suggestions on what to try??
