[Samba] Samba 3.0.0rc1 and 2 servers - PDC and homes

I have Samba 3.0.0rc1 installed on a linux server DC-01 and it's configured as 
a PDC. The only share it has is netlogon. Users are stored in an LDAP passdb.

All our users' home directories are on a second linux server, FS-01.  It's 
been joined to the domain (command "sudo net join -U Administrator", which is 
the name of the "root" account).  And here's a snippet from it's smb.conf:

   bash-2.05$ testparm
   Processing section "[homes]"
   Loaded services file OK.
   Server role: ROLE_DOMAIN_MEMBER

   # Global parameters
	workgroup = CAMPUS
	netbios name = FS-01
	security = DOMAIN
	client lanman auth = No
	client plaintext auth = No
	name resolve order = wins
	os level = 0
	preferred master = No
	local master = No
	domain master = No
	wins server = wins.uwrf.edu

If I logon to the domain from an XP machine and pull up the 
properties|security on one of my files, it shows the following in the "Group 
or user names" box:
   * Group icon for Everyone
   * User? icon with a SID listed
   * Group icon with the name of my group listed

Why do I get the User? icon with the SID showing?  The SID appears to be the 
localsid for FS-01 (where the homes share is located).

 From FS-01:
   bash-2.05$ sudo net getlocalsid CAMPUS
   SID for domain CAMPUS is: S-1-5-21-1347140671-2256076281-2964443892
   bash-2.05$ sudo net getlocalsid
   SID for domain FS-01 is: S-1-5-21-3124996394-1784840607-3979961563

The User? SID is S-1-5-21-3124996394-1784840607-3979961563-10808

I was expecting the User icon with my login name since this is supposed to be 
a single domain with single users/groups.  If I look at a file on 
\\DC-01\netlogon, I see my name and group.  Is there some step I've missed in 
setting up the homes server?
