[Samba] permission and library dep issues after fedora upgrade

Hi Folks,

I recently upgraded my fedora server from fc8 to fc10 and have trouble 
getting my samba server working again.

I have 2 problems that are probably coherent to each other.

First Problem:
When I try to connect to my samba shares I get this error:
'/share/path' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to 
[share name] Error was Keine Berechtigung

The last two words mean: "Permission denied"

I checked my samba configuration and think that anything looks fine. I 
did not change anything on that after upgrade. Also the directory 
permissions remain unchanged.

During my research for solving this problem I stumbled over my second
when I try to execute this "smbclient -N -L localhost" on my samba 
server I get this error:
smbclient: error while loading shared libraries: libldap-2.3.so.0: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I checked my library path and found that I have "libldap-2.4.so.2". Why 
is smbclient looking for libldap-2.3?

The installed packages are the latest from FC10:
samba.i386  3.2.5-0.23.fc10
samba-client.i386  3.2.5-0.23.fc10

Any hint that helps me solving my problems is very appreciated!

Thanks & Regards,


P.S. I already posted my problems at the fedora list without any 
response and hopefully get help from this list.
