ive tested today samba 3 beta 2 as pdc
with allready posted smb.conf,
i was able to join smb domain with creating machine account on the fly 
with a clean fresh installed , with all security  uploads which was possible
and win xp serv. pack 1a german edition without any problem,
no reg patch etc was needed
your problem must be in your smb.conf or depend on compile
the only problem i discovered are permission mappings and userdelete (which
dont works yet)
post your smb.conf
