You're right. It's not exactly that samba cannot connect to port 445, it
fails in get_domain_sids(), the last line in the log is:

  ERROR: Samba cannot obtain PDC SID from PDC(s) nobbi.

Well, I'll see if I get the beast installed on the PDC. After all it's a
toy machine, so I don't really bother what happens to the domain ;-)

Thanks for the help.
