try rpcclient -S neumann -U administrator -W DOMAIN
enter the administrator's password for the target domain.

is the target an NT PDC or a Samba PDC?

also, try setting debug log level to 100 in smb.conf or specify -d 100 on
the command line (if that works!)

as mentioned to matthew (and now to you, stefan), "critical error" tells
me nothing: a Netmon text-print-out provides full info.
