Last night, I upgraded from 3.0.7 to 3.0.8. This morning, I got the call that 
most (not all) of the machine couldn't logon to the domain. This was in the logs 
for those workstations that couldn't login:

[2004/11/12 07:04:02, 0, pid=3088, effective(65534, 65534), real(65534, 0)] 
   get_md4pw: Workstation SKYLINE-MIKEG$: no account in domain

I stopped smbd, downgraded to 3.0.7, and started it back up, and all of the 
workstations were immediately able to log back in. There were no changes to my 
secrets.tdb, smbpasswd, /etc/passwd, or /etc/shadow. Does anyone have any idea 
why this happened?
