Did you have this problem only when you upgraded from a 2.0beta to 2.0.0
final or every 7 days when a NT WKS wants to change its password ?

On the same hardware I benchmarked Samba 2.0.0beta4 to be between 5 and 10
times faster than an NT PDC with 24 users logging at the same time.

I don't think so. If you have problems with 2.0.0 that you didn't have
with 2.0beta5, please reports them.
