Samba 3.0 smbclient authentication

I have had real problems getting smbclient from the samba 3.0 allow browsing my NT4 server. I have tried both lisa and LinNeighborhood and get problems with authentication. I dropped back to the smbpasswd method, which made the PCs visible, but cannot mount a remote smb directory. The log files show that smbmount is trying to use the tdb password database, which is not working.
I have reverted back to samba 2.28 and everything seems to work.
The security model is "user" and the slackware box is set to not be a browse master or PDC.

Having installed the new webmin, I see that samba passwords were set to plain text, changing this to encrypted and NT machines can browse the samba server. I will try re-upgrading to Samba 3.0. and see if it's now working with the tdb password database.
