Thanks for the once over.  Helps to have multiple eyes to verify 
things.  But in the end I'm still in the same boat and not a single 
suggestion to the facts of my issue.  My config does work as long as the 
unix ID isn't over 11000 and the client windows 7.  Nobody wants to even 
acknowledge or touch that.  I've verified it down to every detail I can 
think of.  I don't know if you read my threads earlier, but I can change 
an existing user to a unix id less than 11000 and they then work.  
Switch them back, broken again.

My back end windows server is 2003.
