With this patch Samba 3 fools Windows client to thinking it talks to 
ADS. So the external part is correct. I agree, that internals are not so 
easy, and that's why the workstation doesn't see the domain after reboot.

Samba 4 overtakes ports 88, 389, 636. Established linux infrastructure 
isn't working with it. Configuring linux client/services to live with 
Samba 4 isn't a trivial task also...
