damn! surely he'll get angry and stop developing kernel code now that 
you has his workstations! :)

try this:
- increasing the log level to 3,
- restart Samba
- remove all Samba logs from /var/log/samba (I assume you don't need them)
- try the domain login (or any of the above you mentioned)
- see what happens in /var/log/samba/machine_name.log when any of these 
errors happen

the clue will be right in front of your eyes (hopefully) :)

WPKG - a Windows software deployment tool to use with Samba
