[Samba] Problems with Samba as PDC

I've got an ugly problem... hope somebody can help:
I upgraded from Samba 2.2.5a to 2.2.7a yesterday (SuSE RPM update).
Since then, all connected Windows computers show strange behaviour:
Depending on the computer, only a few selected users can log in - but
the users able to log in change from computer to computer. None of
them have any local accounts on the machines in question, just the
global Samba-managed Domain account. Additionally, on some machines I
can log in as 'Administrator' (being an alias for the Linux-side
account 'root', defined in smbusers) whereas on most other machines I
need to log in as 'root'.
Any suggestions where I should look or how I could debug this problem?
Setting the debuglevel to 10 and trying to log in just floods me with
messages I don't quite understand. Only real difference between
successful logins and unsuccessful logins is that for the
unsuccessful logins there's never a line saying
'smb_password_ok: Checking SMB password for user <user>'
This line only shows up in the logs for successful logins.
I'm grateful for any kind of help
PS: After I temporarily downgraded back to 2.2.5a, the problem
remained, and even a self-compiled Samba 2.2.7a shows the same
strange behaviour, so I think it's a configuration setting - I just
can't find anything.
