Samba 3alpha, XP: can't login

We run the latest Alpha with default passdb backend and auth
methods (for testing) on FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE. All the accounts
we're talking about are in /etc/passwd and in Samba's smbpasswd
A Windows XP machine that we have here can join the domain
without any problems, and its account (gx-100$) appears in both
(system & samba) password files. The user that does the joinage
is root, and the password used is the one in smbpasswd (on this
machine I made it different from the system password for testing
purposes). However, I haven't succeeded logging into the domain
after the joining. The error Windows gives me is:
| Logon Message
| Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain
| controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your
| computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this
| message continues to appear, contact your system administrator
| for assistance.
In the log file I can find mentions of the machine (gx-100$) being
authenticated, but no mention of the user (vadik). And the log
level is 10.
Any insight will be greatly appreciated, and I will gladly
provide you any info that may help solving the problem.
