I'm running into the same problem, only with slightly different software 
(Windows 2k3 AD server, Samba 3.0.11, OpenBSD 3.6). For people like me 
who have little to no Kerberos experience, i'm guessing this is a 
common problem. Does anyone have a solution, or a pointer to 
documentation that describes a solution?
