[Samba] PDC: Logging out from Windows XP SP2 takes a long time

I have samba set up as primary domain controller, and have problems with
my Windows XP SP2 machines. Logging in is quick, but most of the time
(nine out of ten times) the logout process takes a long time - I do end
up rebooting, but once I let it stay and it took a whole hour before it
was logged out. It seems to act the same way for all users.

Possible sources already eliminated:

- I have disabled the synchronization of My Documents (which was also
taking a long time), and have instead configured My Documents to sit on
a mounted SMB homes share. Though the problems were present before this
change as well (ie it was not the synchronization that was taking the
time, if Windows' messages are correct).
- The profile share is not the same as the homes share (because the
documentation stated that that would create problems).


I'm running Samba 3.0.10-Debian.
