The "missing /var/lib/samba dir" bug, bug #260687, is purported to be
fixed in version 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3 - earlier than the version Jorrit
reports is installed.

Walter and Martin, can you tell me whether you have a /var/lib/samba
directory on your affected systems?

Jorrit, you showed a test involving 'mv /var/lib/samba/
/var/lib/samba.bak/' - did you have a /var/lib/samba directory on your
system when the original crash happened that you were reporting?

The pam_smbpass module unfortunately explicitly disables the normal
Samba logging, which would have generated a more meaningful error
message in a logfile if it were enabled.  If we can first confirm that
everyone's symptoms are the same, then if everyone can tell me which
versions of libpam-smbpass they have installed I can provide a package
build that turns on logging for pam_smbpass so we can see what Samba
itself /says/ the problem is.
