Error logging into domain (c0000252)

I believe the CVS version is to blame. The system I was telling about 
never functioned ok, whatever I try. I renewed the system: Suse 7.2 
from CD and Samba package (rpm). Everything back to normal.
Yesterday I was working with another server and this system did also 
have problems with the domain logon. I removed the CVS version of 
Samba and installed the "latest stable" version. Problems were gone.

So I think the current CVS version is not working properly.
