By using the ip address you are bypassing kerberos and authenticating as 
an older style NT machine which is why it works.  If you're running in 
Mixed Mode a potential workaround would be to remove the realm parameter 
and change security back to "domain" in smb.conf.  If you're not running 
in Mixed Mode then I don't really have anything good to tell you :(.

Some RHEL3 customers running similar environments have reported that 
they re-obtained functionality by downgrading to our 3.0.4 release -- of 
course this release presents its own problems.  Other customers have 
stated that downgrading did not solve anything for them.
