[Samba] samba 3 in non-native ads

Greetings all,

I seem to recall that earlier (alpha, beta etc) releases of samba 3 had a
problem in that they were unable to authenticate via active directory in a
domain that was not native ads (i.e. had both NT4 PDCs and w2k DCs). I am
currently trying to get 
samba-3.0.0-2 (RH 7.3 kernel 2.4.20-18.7) to do just that in a non-native
ads domain with no success, in that: I can join ads using net ads join, but
I can't authenticate user access to particular shares unless I change my
security=ads to security=domain.

Question is as follows: Am I trying to achieve the impossible here because
this feature is still not supported yet or did I get something wrong
somewhere else and this is a fully functional feature?

Thanks in advance,
