Is there perhaps a pop up that does not last very long asking for a
password when you first log on after the reboot? We had one user who
was missing such a pop up and he finally found out that he had to watch
the screen very closely after rebooting.

That said, your version of Samba is very very old. The latest in the 3.*
series is 3.6.22. It may well predate Windows 7.
