No, I don't think so, I have been aware if this behaviour in all versions
since NTDom stuff was operational. The important thing is that it only
shows up if the server has been running, without mods, for some time
(months ??). Powering down does not trigger the symptoms, upgrading samba
does !??? (What the hell could be the difference ?).

I have at least one NT here that will not join until I go through the
process. I'll save it if someone can suggest any tests to do before. (Time
is a problem at present, I've been kicked out of my play room while the
builders do it all up, but will try ).
