I was advised only a week ago by the guy setting up our new server 
that we should not do this, so the new domain set up has a different 
name to any of the workgroups. He said we would have lots of problems 
if the domain has the same name as a workgroup. Do you have any 
pointers to where I can find out about these issues ?

This is with Samba 2.2.5-suse, part of their SLOX package - I'm 'in 
discussions' with them about the issues of changing it to Samba 3.
