I forgot a critical piece of information. The VM also worked perfectly 
as of Friday, October 18, 2013. That evening I updated my CentOS 6.4 on 
all my Linux boxes. That included updating from sernet-samba-4.0.9-5 to 
sernet-samba-4.0.10-5. I thought the issue was the version of samba so I 
immediately downgraded back to sernet-samba-4.0.9-5. However the problem 
on the VM persisted after moving back to sernet-samba-4.0.9-5. Therefore 
I am not sure what might have changed to break the VM box. All other 
Linux/Window boxes seem to be perfectly content with 
sernet-samba-4.0.10-5. That is why I am wondering if it might have 
something to do with the VM and having done an update to the VM CentOS 
6.4 OS ... maybe something was reset?
