You need to include *much* more detail in a bug report, if you want to
see it taken seriously.  samba-bugs should really only be used for
'confirmed' bugs, once all configuratoin and version issues have already
been delt with.  We simply do not have the resources to handle such
vauge issues.

So, it appears that your machine does not have a valid account in the
domain.  Have you tried with Samba 2.2.5?  There have been byte order
issues in this area previously.  Have you examined the logs on both
servers, during both the join and a failed authenticaion?
