Procedure number out of range

Just something to add to the pot that may or may not be a clue.

I try to join the domain. First attempt, with root, I always get
"Procedure number out of range". Second attempt, I get something like
"Account you are using is a UNIX account. Try a local or global account"
and then it disables the root entry in smbpasswd (sets it to DW).

I have applied the patch. My smb.conf follows.

# Global parameters
        security = user
        status = yes
        workgroup = HIGPTEST
        domain admin users = root pilger
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        domain logons = yes
        password level = 1
        debug level = 3
        log file = /var/log/sambalog
        announce version = 4.0
        name resolve order = wins host bcast
        os level = 65
        local master = Yes
        wins server =
        NIS homedir = Yes
        create mask = 0775
        force create mode = 0775
        force directory mode = 02000
        hosts allow = 128.171.4. 127.

        path = /aux0
        writeable = Yes

        path = /aux1
        writeable = Yes

        path = /aux2
        writeable = Yes

        path = /home
        writeable = Yes

        writeable = Yes

        path = /local/shared
        writeable = Yes

        path = /etc/samba_2_2/netlogon
        writeable = no
        guest ok = no
