[Samba] network name no longer available

I have a samba PDC/BDC setup with a small number of W2k clients.
Not too long ago I set up a set of new servers on fresh Fedora 1 boxes
using Samba 3.0.1 and migrated my LDAP to the new schema. It was all
working quite well until recently.
Suddenly, when I try to change permissions on a windows share (from the
windows box), after I give the root password, I get a message that "The
specified network name is no longer available" and everything fails.
I get the same message when I go into network neighborhood and try to
browse to either of the SAMBA boxes. Something must have gotten
glitched, but I'm not quite stumped as to what. I even updated to
3.0.2rc1 to see if it made a difference...
The one thing that may be relevant is that I had had my primary LDAP
server hang for a period of time (too many open files, hopefully now
resolved) which made everyone somewhat upset (oddly, even the BDC which
is it's own ldap server).
At this point I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions or debugging advice
that might be offered. I'll try to stick around and offer the benefit of
my limited knowledge in return.
The other samba system can see everything just fine.
