Hate to respond to myself ( kind of makes me feel that I am talking to
myself... ) but someone else may find this interesting.

I was able to cure this illness on my NT boxes ( the ones on a different
subnet than the samba PDC ) by setting up a Samba server as the local
browse master on the remote subnet for the domain.  This would seem to
point to a name resolution problem.  Anyways,  works now. Contact me for
details if you need them.

Gone for now,
