credentials failed?

I'm having a bugger of a time trying to get domain logons working.
I'm using samba-tng-alpha.2.5.3 on debian 2.1r4 (linux 2.2.14 kernel).
I'm using SunDS for LDAP, and nt4, service pack 4. 

I set up a domain, and can login just fine. After I log in, when
the workstation tries to mount its profiles and such, I get this
error in the log file:

rpc_api_pipe_req: data_end: 72 and offset 66 wrong
cli_nt_setup_creds: request challenge failed
domain_client_validate: credentials failed (\\.)
SMB LM/NT Password did not match!      
Rejecting user 'rmk': authentication failed
32 bit error packet at line 493 cmd=115 (SMBsesssetupX) eclass=c000006d [Error: Unknown error (109,49152)]
error string = Address already in use
Transaction 1 of length 174            
switch message SMBnegprot (pid 16087)

I'm stymied here. If there's any more information I can provide for
background on this, let me know.
