Another note, what is very worrisome to me is that while nothing 
configuration wise (smb.conf, krb5.conf) has changed -- 3.0.0 is now 
exhibiting the same symptoms that 3.0.1 and 3.0.2pre1 has.

This really does not make much sense, as when I changed back to 3.0.0 I 
tried to start as cleanly as I could, unjoined from the domain, cleaned 
out the /tmp directories, etc.

So if you're watching the list, and your thinking of upgrading to 3.0.1 
for your domain member servers, I'd just hold off for now : p (Serves me 
right for being an early adopter !).
