slow file browsing with MS Office - reply_spnego_kerberos(250)

I have a weird issue with Samba 3.0.10 on an MAC OS X Server 10.3.9 with AD

When accessing shares on the server from a Windows XP PC with explorer and
browse thru the folders, all works fine. 

If i try the same using the FileOpen dialog from within MS Office (Word,
Excel), the browsing (changing of folders up and down) is extremely slow.
Browsing this way, the Samba log on the server shows me lots of error
message of the form:

reply_spnego_kerberos(250) Username DOMAIN/COMPUTERNAME$ is invalid on this

I know, this is the AD machine account of the client pc. I've tried various
suggestions from the web, i.e. making the client pc computername all
uppercase, tried winbind separators /, +, _ , setting default_realm in
\Library\Preferences\ etc., nothing has helped yet.

Any ideas? Samba specialists out there, you are my last resort...
