I have reviewed all the posts in this thread and I 'think' I know what 
is going on and also answers a question I asked.

You have in your smb.conf:

unix password sync = Yes

This possibly means that you have a group in /etc/group called allusers 
with the ID of 63000

I would replace the line with:

ldap password sync = yes

Do you have libnss-ldap installed ?

What are the 'passwd' and 'group' lines in /etc/nsswitch.conf ?
