I have found no help on the samba IRC server( except for a very generous 
  engima offering up what little information he/she could). 
samba-technical didn't answer my about this either. Can someone here 
help me, this happens on my gentoo(stable x86) box with both 2.2.8a and 
3.0.2a. The pdc is a NT4 Terminal Server.

I am happy to provide as much information as needed to help get this 
solved. Willing to even write up a bug report( as 1 doesn't seem to 
exist yet). I just thought i would write here first to see if anyone 
might have come across this before.

Another quick question if i may, do have have to do this to the PDC, 
could i maybe get away with doing a BDC?

thanks in advance for any and all help.
