Found the problem. I didn't know you had to REJOIN THE DOMAIN!!!!! :-)

i.e. the DOMAIN.mac file generated within Samba 2.0 series for domain
members isn't used by 2.2. In fact there were a few debug lines of the form
"not found" (with no filename) - perhaps they are broken debugs referring to
the fact that secrets.tdb/etc weren't found? If not, there probably should
be such debug calls anyway.

I couldn't find anything about rejoining the domain being required
documented anywhere, so perhaps that fact should be emphasized so that
others (besides me) don't make the same mistake?

Anyway, all working now :-)
