Hi All

I've been using samba for some time as a PDC in our company. Everything 
was alright till I upgraded samba
from 3.0.22 to 3.0.24 (and to 3.0.26 later). Now I can't log in to 
domain anymore. In samba logs there's a message:
[2007/11/21 10:17:29, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(850)
  make_connection: connection to IPC$ denied due to security descriptor.

I was googling for it and found solution to delete share_info.tdb 
however that didn't helped. Do you have any ideas
what's wrong? After downgrading samba to 3.0.22 everything goes back to 
normal and I can log in into domain again.

I'm using:
k3 samba # uname -a
Linux k3 2.6.20-vs2.2.0-gentoo-ipmi-070618 #3 SMP Mon Jun 18 03:10:49 
CEST 2007 x86_64 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU 5160 @ 3.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

k3 samba # smbd -V
Version 3.0.26a
