[Samba] Join Domain OK, but domain name not found after reboot :-(

I have a WinXP box (yup, sign-or-seal registry patch applied), and I
can initially join it to my domain. It then prompts me to reboot, for
the changes to take effect.
So I do.
After the reboot, I cannot log onto the domain (using users which are
held in LDAP, and who can do console- and ssh-logins fine). The
error-message says something to the effect that the domain name could
not be found.
Curiouser: I log in locally as Administrator, then check the
workgroup, and it's *NOT* what I had set previously when joining my
domain! I see the domain as "shaw.ca" rather than "WHITEROCK".
This is very repeatable.
What causes this joining-but-later-failing-to-connect domain behaviour?
How do I correct it so that I can log on?
Samba3.0alpha24 from .rpm.
Local, Domain, Preferred Master (all yes)
Domain logons (although I don't have Win9x boxes)
Security = user
wins server enabled
smbclient lists samba-server shares. The Workgroup lists
(appropriately) as WHITEROCK, whether smbclient is run on the
samba-server or another linux box.
