Major code changes can often break your current setup. For
example, the fix with the internal reading of the domain SID
on a Samba PDC should have broken some sites depending on
the PDC' SID. I don't think it can be stressed enough that
the PDC support is experiemental, not complete and changes
often. That's just the price we pay for being able to run
without an NT Server.
However, given that nothing in the update changes the
relationship between the PDC and it's sam database
(private/smbpasswd) or it's SID, upgrading should not
break you domain.
Could you specify the exact steps when you upgrade?
