no errors in logs or console

I edited the default smb.conf because I do have a domain server (my main
server) which is running samba & ldap and I'm using ldapsam on that. My
desktop system, I really don't use samba so it was a configuration
direct from packaging. To be honest, I've never used tdbsam for passdb
before...I started with smbpasswd a long time ago and now use ldap
everywhere, all the time.

as an FYI, I too get...
# net getdomainsid
SID for local machine LIN-WORKSTATION is:
Could not fetch domain SID

obviously this works on my PDC and I don't get the error...I presume
because that one is set to 'domain master = yes' among other things.

samba pretty much requires configuration changes from 3.023 - lots of
things changed.

you might try...

stopping smb/nmb service
removing (or just moving) /var/lib/samba/private/passdb.tdb
and /var/lib/samba/private/secrets.tdb and restarting smb/nmb,
recreating the user barbara and see what happens
