I'm having the same problem.  If you remove service pack 4 everything
works again.  My NT SP4 clients can only participate in a workgroup
environment and can not join the samba domain.  They can join an NT Server
domain however.  Not much help but maybe you will feel better if someone
else feels your pain.
