Description of problem:
I have a workgroup, 1 Fedora box and 1 Mac OS 10.2. Every resource I access with
samba requires a password multiple times. For example if I copy a folder to my
Ferdora box that has 13 files in it, I get prompted for my password 13 times.
Both systems are setup to "encrypt passwords = yes"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Both samba servers setup to start at boot.
3. Enter password, enter password.
4. Change directories.
5. Enter password, enter password, enter password, enter password.
Actual Results: Get propmted for every resource browsed or copied.
Expected Results: Should work like it did in RH 9.

That's similar to my bug: #85116
But for me, sometimes it just won't connect at all. After many retries, it will
connect, it will ask me for the password, again and again and again...
Tested with Fedora 2 to RHL8 and 9 and had the same results. I think it's a
problem with Samba 3.x talking to Samba 2.x
Seems to be fixed in FC 1.
