[Samba] another Win2KSP3/Samba2.2.8a-PDC Problem

Hi list,

I am faced by a strange problem w/ one of our 10 win2k/sp3 clients in a
samba2.2.8a pdc-network. If I want to logon I get a message like
this(translated from german): "Your profile has not been loaded, but you
will be logged in to a local Profile. Your serverside profile has not been
loaded because its security-properties are not properly." and that's it.
Even if I blast my log level to 4, I can't see any suspicious lines in my
logs (the one for the client as well as nmbd/smbd - I did this, because
after I installed this system, some users have not been allowed to log in to
other systems as well, also without any suspicious logs.
The only hint I have is, that the systen can't updated the nameserver's
wins-table ("a possible reason would be a blocking zone-transfer"), that may
be necessary for the dhcp-named-wins controlled network.
Does anybody of you have any suggestions?
Thanks a lot,
