and I did have "password server" set in the smb.conf.  Following your
suggestion about the workgroup, I have set the workgroup to "S-RES"
instead of "S-RES.UVA.NL".  It now works much better now.  wbinfo -t
and wbinfo -a both work correctly.  I will now go further with making
a share on the linux box with AD authentication but it looks like the
problem is solved.

Thanks for all the help!
