Unfortuntely, the signed traffic setting affects the entire domain, and I
don't think that I will be able to sell my company's AD admins on decreasing
company-wide security for a single branch office server.

I read this message which says that samba 3 supports signing, and that it
doesn't need to be disabled in AD.

Is this mesage inaccurate?

I have /var/log/samba/winbindd.log, which consistantly states:
[2004/10/19 11:46:21, 1] nsswitch/winbindd.c:main(854)
  winbindd version 3.0.7-2.FC2 started.
