Machine accounts are no longer recognized in SAMBA 3.0-20-4

Yesterday we upgraded Samba to version 2.999+3.0.alpha20-4 and this
morning NO-ONE was able to log in to the Samba PDC.  I upgraded from
20-3.  Nothing has changed in the smb.conf file.

We are using the unstable version of Samba because this is the only
version of SAMBA that works with our SNAP server.  (Damn SNAP!.  We
should have built our own fileserver!!! ;(   )

The error message on Win2k is something to the effect of "Your computer
account is invalid or the password is incorrect"  

I verified (using pdbedit -lv) that the computer account is there and
that they were not expired.

I have a debug 10 log ready for anyone who can help me.   

Would really APPRECIATE ANY HELP anyone out there can give me!

I reverted back to 20-3 with no success.  I also restored all the old
.tdb's with no success.

Is there a way to disable samba looking for valid machine accounts
temporarily so that users can log in while I try to fix this problem?
