It's a samba server that is a member of a samba domain.  That is, it uses 
the PDC to authenticate users.  My user with the problem is trying to do 
something like this:

smbclient //linux-client/share -U user


If I do it with my credentials - or another user with their credentials, 
no problem.  If he does:  smbclient //another-linux-client/share -U user
It works.  Also if he does:  smbclient //pdc/share -U user
It works, it is just his credentials on this one machine...
