I am trying to connect a FreeBSD server running 7.0 Release and Samba 3.0.28a to a
Windows 2003 AD Domain Controller. Has anyone had success with this combo? I have joined
the domain and I can enumerate users, groups, etc.. 

humpty# getent passwd|wc -l
humpty# wbinfo -u|wc -l
humpty# wbinfo -g|wc -l

humpty# wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret via RPC calls succeeded

humpty# getent group|wc -l

humpty# net ads info
LDAP server: 128.143.xx.xxx
LDAP server name: pdc.mydomain.virginia.edu
LDAP port: 389
Server time: Mon, 30 Jun 2008 11:29:56 EDT
KDC server: 128.143.xx.xxx
Server time offset: 1

When I try to access my home folder on the Samba server I'm prompted for a user
name and password. Even after credentials are supplied the login box reappears
and I get no further. The client log from the machine I'm connecting with has 
the following error when I try to access my own home folder:

[2008/06/30 14:14:41, 2] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(616)
  user 'MYDOMAIN\mrg8n' (from session setup) not permitted to access this share (mrg8n)

I've read other posts asking similar questions, but no replies that solved the issue. 

smbstatus shows my client machine connected:
