Samba Member Servers dropping out of the domain

Hi folks,

I have seen quite a number of instances of Samba member servers
dropping out of the domain.

This has all been with Samba 3.6.x.

Typical symptoms is that people cannot log in and when you use wbinfo
-t you see:

    wbinfo -t
    checking the trust secret for domain blahblah via RPC calls failed
    error code was NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED (0xc0000022)
    failed to call wbcCheckTrustCredentials: WBC_ERR_AUTH_ERROR
    Could not check secret

After that you have to rejoin the domain.

Is this a problem that is fixed in later versions of Samba?
