We had a lot of problems with Win2k clients browsing domain groups after
upgrading to 2.2.5, we went back to 2.2.3a until 2.2.6 came out, fixing the
problem.  (I just had a quick look for the changelog but can't find it...)

The other hassle we had, also avoided by the rollback and subsequent upgrade
to 2.2.6 was with database sharing, the usual MS Access oplock crud, which
on the day of the week and the weather can happen with most Samba releases.
us, it was 2.2.5 that gave us the most trouble.
