Seems that  the update from 3.0.2(a) to 3.0.(3|4) is a tough one. I just
experienced a similar problem (except mine was a bit more reproducible.

I ended up have to remove every tbd. (Basically I removed samba, purged,
re-installed) and re-joined everything to the domain. All is good so
far. I confirmed that I did not need to restart it to get things to work
good again.

So, good luck re-doing the domain setup (don't forget to keep a copy of
smb.conf as you can just re-use it).

One tidbit: START with 3.0.4. When you join the 2K/XP machines to the
domain, samba will reject it the first try, try once again right after
it rejects it, and you will be welcomed to your domain.
