Similarly, on solaris 2.6 and on hpux 10.20, 2.0.1 won't release the
netlogon share, requests duplicate logons, doesn't process the logon
script, and then drives the load through the roof.  I know this is
anecdotal, and not real helpful for debugging, but I'm still putting out
the fires.

I hate using this phrase (it's so unhelpful), but this was a disaster
for me today.
