olivier reports netlogond going into a tizzy, if you do not successfully
get a login prompt in under 10 seconds once joined to the domain, this is
likely to be happening.

description: when first joining, nt client likes to set password to random
value (from well-known one, using well-known one as key to random one.
pointless, really).

consequences: if this fails, ALL subsequent logins fail.  end of story.

i asked olivier to check that he has unique usernames / group names across
his entire unix pwdb, this could be causing netlogond to go into an
infinite loop somewhere.
