I've been short of time this week, so haven't been able to follow this up.  Meanwhile, samba is now working correctly and I can see my home directory and the calendar is readable in korganizer.  What has changed?  Nothing in my configuration.  The only thing I can think of is that I installed smb4k.  It's sitting in my taskbar, doing nothing.  Why would that matter?  Dunno.  All I know is that things suddenly started working after I did that.

Another of life's sanity-wrecking mysteries.
