this is what i'm using ...
        path = /etc/samba/netlogon
        write list = root
        guest ok = Yes
        nt acl support = No

do you have scriptPath set in ldap?
i don't use logon scripts so i'm not sure you need it - just an idea.

i have one of each of these.
probably you changed your sid during your experiments...
it might be a good idea to wipe out all your tdb files and rejoin
your machines (that is if your still in testing mode)

i get that sometimes - i just ignore it...

you can do that with a setting in gpedit.msc
don't remember which one but i think i'll be obvious.

just use wins - it reduces broadcasting significantly.
it would not be entirely trivial to just bring up a fake pdc
you'd need to know the domain SID
fake authentication of clients 
and fake up some profiles to be downloaded to the user.

I don't think the client authenticates the server with samba.
someone with more knowledge of the internals might be able to comment
more usefully on this front...
