  forgive me if this is common knowledge, but i found
  my configuration error which caused the issue, and thought
  to post it as it might help someone.

  quick background:

  samba server ::

security = user
logon script = hklocal.bat 
logon path = \\%L\%U\windir
logon drive = u:\
logon home = \\%L\%U\windir
workgroup = hklocal.net

  hklocal.bat ::

@echo off

net time \\gateway /set /yes
net use m: /home /yes
net use n: \\gateway\rambear /yes
net use o: \\gateway\warthog /yes

  on a succesfully joined-to-domain 2k(sp2) machine, a login
  to the hklocal.net domain would reboot the system 
  ( nearly instantly ) after everyone agreed that the password
  for the user i was putting in was cool.

  changing the above line to read:

logon drive = u:

  utterly fixed the problem. ( and U: is successfully mapped
  to unixland://home/user/windir ; M: is successfully mapped
  to unixland://home/user )

  that extra slash = very bad.

  hope this can help someone.
