what does your "security" value say?

If it's set to "security = domain" the server will be
able to authenticate you by checking with an NT domain
server. This is where your winbind separator becomes
relevant. Check out smb.conf and nsswitch.conf
(you've got winbind under passwd, right?)

You may already know that! ;)

Try using wbinfo to check you can authenticate
yourself as you'd expect from the command line.
