I downloaded branch SAMBA_2_0 yesterday and tested it.

I'm running one samba server as a PDC, another as a domain member, and
some NT workstations.

I was no longer able to access the samba server that is a domain member.
I tried resetting the trust account password on the samba PDC and having
the domain member samba server rejoin the domain, but it was unable to
join the domain in this current version.  The log messages are:
