Samba 2.2.5 and WinNT Problems

Samba 2.2.5 works fine with WinXP but it seems, that it doesn't work as 
fine as 2.2.4 did with NT.

I'm using Samba as a PDC on Solaris 7 intel.

When I try to add a Domainuser to a local Group on a Workstation, then I 
get an errormessage saying "This user does exist in the Domain". Well I 
can log on to the domain as that user. Someone told me about that it now 
makes a diffrence, if the Domainname is written as DOMAIN, Domain or 
domain. NT prefers DOMAIN and XP seems to prefer Domain. Could someone 
please tell me how to make Samba 2.2.5 usable with WinNT?

When I try to add a Workstation to a domain where already a 
computeraccount for that Workstation exists, Samba 2.2.5 is unable to 
delete the old account and create a new one. Samba 2.2.4 had no problem 
with preexisting Workstationaccounts.

Thats how I configured samba:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --localstatedir=/var/samba 
--with-privatedir=/etc/samba --with-lockdir=/var/samba/locks 
--with-piddir=/var/samba/run --with-configdir=/etc/samba 
--with-logfilebase=/var/samba/log --with-pam --with-pam_smbpass 
--with-nisplussam --with-quotas --with-acl-support --without-winbind

Thanks in advance
