[Samba] smbldap-tools not playing nice w/ samba ?

Please help!

I'm having a difficult time getting a machine to join my domin.  Samba 
sucessfully adds the machine account using the smbldap-useradd -w 
script,  but I get the error "The user name could not be found".

Here's what it looks like it's doing in the ldap logs:   

1. There's a login as cn=Manager, which searches for the root account, 
and then for a bunch of gidNumbers.  It then searches for the machine$ 
with a sambaSamAccount objectclass, and exits.

2. It then reconnects anonymously and searches for machine$ and MACHINE$ 
twice (no results). 

3. After that it connects again as cn=Manager and and searches for the 
machine$ under posixAccount (still no restuls).  It then finally adds 
the entry for machine$  but without the sambaSamAccount objectclass.

After that there are no more LDAP queries.   What could be causing the 
error I'm getting?
