[Samba] Browsing [homes] fine with smbclient/konqueror, fails with XP sp2

Hi all

Samba Server:
SuSE 9.0
Version 3.0.14a-SUSE
security = ads
(w2k3 AD server with sp1)

After much head scratching, I have found this:

My linux client (SuSE 9.2, Samba Version 3.0.15pre2-0.1-SUSE) can view the 
home share perfectly, with `smbclient -L smbserver`, and with 
smb:/user at smbserver in konqueror. 

Using an XP sp2 client, I cannot access the home share unless the permissions 
are 755 (it needs the group and others to be able to read and execute). When 
I do, files owned by the user are not available to them, unless I open up the 
file permissions for group/other.

In the log, I was occasionally getting:
smbd/sesssetup.c:reply_spnego_kerberos(173) Failed to verify incoming ticket!
But now I have just checked and there do not appear to be errors in the log 
when I access the share from an xp client.

With other shares, where access is restricted to special groups or single 
users, it also fails in windows, and succeeds with smbclient in linux.

What is going wrong here? Any help whatsoever greatly appreciated!
