For the purpose of my question I will use the following informaiton:

User Name = john.smith
Domain Name = MARS

I have a samba-3 domain set up using Win XP Pro clients.  Everything 
works ok besides for a few programs that are flaking out.  But I have 
one small querk.

I can log on the computer using MARS\john.smith and works fine.  Lets 
say I have john.smith as a local user account with the profile of  
%SYSTEMROOT%\Documents and Settings\john.smith and then he logs into the 
domain which should create the profile folder of john.smith.MARS but 
instead it creates john.smith.MIDEARTH.

Also when using usrmgr.exe or srvmgr.exe, it never find MARS without me 
having to select the domain.  I suspect its looking for MIDEARTH as the 
domain but i'm not sure why.

Any ideas?
