Is anyone else having problems with W2K terminal services and a Samba 

I'm running Samba 2.2.3a on Mac OS X Server 10.1.2, set up as a PDC per 
the HOWTO instructions. I have a Windows 2000 Server running terminal 
services and Citrix Metaframe, which I've joined to the domain. I have a 
set of scripts that synchronize NetInfo passwords and smbpasswd 
passwords. Everyone can logon, and the user profiles get created/updated 
on the profiles share on the server...everything seems to be working 
beautifully, but then at some point (generally after several users have 
logged on) the W2K box loses track of the domain, nobody else can logon, 
and it goes into an unresponsive mode at the console, to the point that 
we ultimately have to hard-reset the box.

Right now I'm staring at a blank screen at the console...I made the 
mistake of trying to restart it gracefully, and it's hung probably 
trying to kill some process. I've noticed that when people logoff, 
sometimes there are still active processes still running under their 
name. Any clues?
