yet the behaviour you are seeing is an authorization problem.

Either the password is wrong, or the password is compared to the wrong 
master, or samba is incapable of verifying the password.
One of the things to check is whether you have a unix account. It must 
exist for all security levels except share.
You may want to look into this.
Also taking out a network sniffer and checking whether the not-working 
samba server is communicating with the win2k domain server would help.
Another option is to increase the debug (log) level in smb.conf and 
taking a good look at the resulting log file. I've had good results 
using log level to hunt down problems.

Good luck,
