Please post your smb.conf file and make sure you have /etc/pam.d/samba.

I don't know if this was ever fixed in Fedora. I moved to ARCH when samba didn't work as intended, so I thought I'd report it.
I have the exact configuration in ARCH that I was going to use in Fedora and have no problems what so ever.

Sorry, guess I should have requested this bug to be closed since I don't use Fedora anymore.

So this bug can be closed.
