[Samba] netlogon sometimes works (corrected with smb.conf attached)

I tried hardcoding it into the network card's settings, ensured the 
settings were there (ipconfig/all) and it did work on the first occasion.
Subsequent logins, fail to make it run the netlogon script
I've tried turning debug up but the output doesn't make much sense, had it 
mentioned "attempting netlogon share, failed due to..." then I'd at least 
be in a position to understand it.
But the problem is intermittent and not mentioned in the logs (except when 
it succeeds)

Are you using WINS? If you believe you are:
                 IS Samba your WINS server (ie: 'wins support = yes')
                 ARE your MS Windows clients WINS settings the IP Address 
of your
                 samba server.
