[Samba] Password server is not connected.

we are rolling out a big Samba 2.2.8a installation.
I used that version because I succeded in compiling it with Sun Directory Server 5.2 (ldap) libraries without any source modification.
We are using "security=server", which is an Active Directory.
During our test we get a lot of random
"smbd/password.c:server_validate(1102) password server  is not connected"
(note the password server is not specified)
This is a random error: after a while then you can authenticate correctly.
So I am guessing if there is some parameter which would avoid it.

My smb.conf is:
        workgroup = CTXHERA
        netbios name = SAMBATEST
        interfaces = samb2/ bsamb2/
        bind interfaces only = Yes
        security = server
        password server = ctxdc1, ctxdc2
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        server string = Area TEST SAMBA2
        lock dir = /usr/local/samba2_test/var/locks
        pid directory = /usr/local/samba2_test/var/locks
        log file = /usr/local/samba2_test/var/logfile
        log level = 3
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192 SO_KEEPALIVE
        wide links = No
        create mask = 0770
        directory mask = 0770
        comment = PITECO_TEST
        browseable = yes
        writable = yes
        path = /samba/samba01/TEST/piteco_test

Many thanks and best regards.
