[Samba] cannot change user password with CTRL-ALT-DEL

I've been running samba (currently 2.2.3a-13 for Debian) as a PDC with W2k 
clients for over two years. The system was up and running quite well for a 
long time. A couple of days ago, I installed the following MS-patches:


Now when users try to change their password from the w2k clients using 
CTRL-ALT-DEL, a popup window appears saying: "password change failed, the 
domain <xxx> is not available". But the fact is that the password has been 
succesfully changed (i.e. the popup should state: "password succesfully 
changed."). When users log out and login again, the login obviusly fails, 
since users use their old passwords instead of the new ones...

I wonder whether I am the only one who is experiencing this problem and 
whether somebody knows how to solve this problem.

I can send the logs (nmbd.log, smbd.log and log.machinename) if somebody 
needs them.
