[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#423780: /usr/sbin/smbd: does not log warning when login is tried with non-existent users

Package: samba
Version: 3.0.24-6
Severity: minor
File: /usr/sbin/smbd

I do not have too much experience with samba and have just called
smbpassword on my user account to set a password (which succeeded
without warning) and then spent the next 30 minutes debugging why no
login was possible. smbpasswd -a mh (as root) was necessary.

In these situation, with log level 5, all that was found in the log
file was that smbd was trying to log me in as root. It neither said
that I was trying to log in as "mh", nor that the user I was trying to
log in as was not existent or not activated. This should be improved.
