Bad machine accounts

Well, this morning I did a cvs update and now the machine logs in okay --
but something else broke, and since I now have a level 100 debug log I'll
let y'all know anyway.  There are three issues currently unresolved, all
of which should show up in this log:

1.) the "detected a slow network connection" dialog on login, asking if
the user wants to download the profile or use a local one:

2.) Can't connect to *any* shares on the PDC except those set guest only
-- all others get invalid password errors.  Until today, it worked fine to
connect to a share on another Samba server in the domain with security =
server and password server = <samba_pdc name>.  HOWEVER,

3.) Today's new issue is that the scheme above doesn't work quite right
anymore.  I can no longer browse the machine above, a Samba server but
not a PDC, running 1.9.18p7 with security=server and password server =
(our Samba PDC server).  Browsing gets "access denied" but mounting works
fine using NET USE.

I'll put the log in
for your reading enjoyment :)
