TNG 2.6 PDC problems

As part of my attempts to contribute with the TNG -> HEAD domain control
merging effort, I have compiled and installed 2.6-alpha (on a
SPARCstation, running Solaris 8).
I've read through Lars Kneschke's HOWTO and FAQ pages, which have helped
(thanks Lars!), but still I'm having some problems configuring my server
The NetBIOS name of my server is HAL. My domain/workgroup is PHYSIOL_TNG.
I attach a copy of my smb.conf file at the bottom of this message.
I have run samedit as root on the local machine ("samedit -S . -U root"),
and successfully created some local user accounts and workstation trust
accounts. I can connect to and use services on the machine if my
workgroup/domain is set to HAL ("samedit -S HAL -U root -W HAL",
"smbclient -L hal -U username -W HAL", connect to file shares from an NT
client using "hal\username" as the username in the "connect as"
dialogue). I've even manage do join NT and W2K machines to the domain,
using "hal\root" as the username used in the joining process.
My problem is that whenever I try to make any form of connection to the
server using domain/workgroup PHYSIOL_TNG (domain login after successful
joining, or samedit/smbclient with "-W PHYSIOL_TNG") then the server
just spawns more and more netlogind processes until it runs out of
I have a feeling that I've missed something important in configuring
things, but after several days of messing about and reading and
re-reading all the docs that I can find, I can't figure out what!
If anyone has any ideas, or more documentation pointers, I'd really
appreciate a push in the right direction ...
Alternatively: are there any known problems with TNG 2.6 or TNG on
Solaris that I ought to be aware of?
