[Samba] NT PDC problems...

Hello everyone.

I've got Samba version 2.2.2 running on Sparc Solaris 8 installed the
sunfreeware.com package.  I've configured the machine to be a PDC for a small
windows NT 4 domain.  My smb.conf file is below.  When logging on from a
workstation sometimes the login works fine, but most times I get an error saying
the domain controller can't be found.  When that happens I also get this in my
log.machine file:

[2002/10/17 15:01:46, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(238)
  workstation ( couldn't find service testuser

Where testuser is the name of my useraccount.  Anyone know what the problem is here?
