consult the manpage for "log level" - while i honestly could puke about 
every samba log entry source file and line number cluttering the logs 
and hence reduced it to a minimum

nobody but developers care about "../source3/auth/auth.c:305" and hence 
that should be logged only in a debug level

log level = 1 auth:2 passdb:2 tdb:1 vfs:1 smb:1 locking:1 sam:1 
winbind:1 idmap:1 quota:1 acls:0 msdfs:1 dmapi:1 registry:1 
printdrivers:0 lanman:0 rpc_parse:0 rpc_srv:0 rpc_cli:0

[2015/12/08 00:56:03.049763,  2] 
   check_ntlm_password:  authentication for user [reindl] -> [reindl] -> 
[reindl] succeeded
