	That is a know bug of Samba 3.0.0, and I am sure it has been fix. If 
suggest you comment out "valid users" for Samba 3.0.0, if that is your

	I have see something similar, but could not put my finger on it, but I 
think that was because of multi server, client and Samba restarts with 
internels in flux state ... if everthing was started clean, I seemed not 
to have problems like this with Samba 3.0.1 as a PDC.

	Samba 3.0.1 as a domain member of Win2K3 AD, I have had problems, which 
I have not been able to fix, so I am staying with Samba 3.0.1 as PDC.

	Samba 3.0.0 as a domain member of Win2K3 AD, works fine, but I need the 
other fixes that have gone into Samba 3.0.1, so Samba 3.0.0 is still on 
my testing system until I can find the problem with Samba 3.0.1 or the 
next upgrade ...
