doesn't strike me as having anything whatsoever to do with
passwords...sounds more like a problem with group mapping...

why don't you try posting up - or checking out for yourself...

# net groupmap list

# samba getlocalsid

and see if the SID portion prior to RID's are all in alignment...sounds
like something changed or the "Domain Users" SID isn't correct.
