[samba] Adding Domain Groups to local Groups Crashed XP

Im using samba 3.0.9 with LDAP (Sun Iplanet 5.2 directory Server).

On an XP client, im trying to add "Domain Users" group to the Local
"Power Users" group (For windows updates etc...) However when i try to
add the group it just crashed the windows.

Also if i use the usrmgr.exe to edit groups, the usermgr also crashes,
nothing in logs to show any errors.

If i use windows 2000 pro to add "Domain Users" group to the Local
"Power Users" group it works but takes about 2 mins?

Any ideas anybody?

my smb.conf file:

        workgroup = UNI-STAFF
        passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://yoda.sunderland.ac.uk
        username map = /usr/local/lib/usermap
        log level = 2
        logon path = \\uos-stud\profiles\%U
        logon home =
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 33
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        ldap admin dn = "cn=Directory Manager"
        ldap group suffix = ou=domain-groups
        ldap idmap suffix = ou=domain-groups,dc=sunderland,dc=ac,dc=uk
        ldap machine suffix = ou=domain-computers
        ldap passwd sync = Yes
        ldap suffix = dc=sunderland,dc=ac,dc=uk
        idmap backend = ldap:ldap://yoda.sunderland.ac.uk

        comment = netlogon share
        path = /usr/local/lib/netlogon
