weird samba problem

So I had a box where nmbd would start fine, but smbd wouldn't.  In
/var/log/samba/smbd.log, I had the following two errors:

[2007/04/11 17:35:13, 0] services/services_db.c:svcctl_init_keys(420)
  init_services_keys: key lookup failed! (WERR_ACCESS_DENIED)
[2007/04/11 17:35:13, 0] smbd/server.c:main(960)
  ERROR: failed to setup guest info.

After fighting with this for way longer than I care to admit, I set
"log level = 10" in /etc/samba/smb.conf, and that's when I finally
noticed that smbd was trying to do LDAP lookups against the wrong base
DN.  It turns out I had a typo in the "ldap suffix" line in smb.conf.

So, for the record, typos suck.
