You have to specify "workgroup\jpgalvan" style in smbusers file
instead of "jpgalvan". 

* After Samba 3.0.8, workgroup\username style was recommended and
  after Samba 3.0.23b, workgroup\username style was required.

Also you have to create *Samba user* for root, a mapped user.

Please set "log level = 3 (or above)" and search "check_ntlm_password"
in your log file if you do not work yet.
