[Samba] Samba 3.4 Windows 95/98 logon problem

The domain controller is an old NT4, not the samba server. The password there works fine because the machines can connect to the PDC's shares no problem. The key here is the "security = domain" setting. When I change it to "security = server" it works fine. Both settings should be essentially same except "domain" is less demanding on the PDC and more fault tolerant. Under both settings, the NT4 PDC is asked to validate the password. But, the first one does not work while the second does.
