I'm not so sure. Don't blame M$ too soon. Your use of
LDAP or how you use it may be the problem.

I'm not sure it does, probably not. Do other posters
complain about PDC+LDAP+W2K-SP3-4? You can't be the 
1st one with the problem. I don't use LDAP. SPs never 
affected my clients, 2, 3, 4.

Better analyze the login transactions for both SPs 
in a higher level log to be a bit more sure what is
going on.
