[Samba] Trusted Domain's users not authenticating properly.

I have a Samba-3, v3.0.10-1.4E installation on RedHat Enterprise 4.  The
server has successfully joined a Native Windows 2003 Active Directory
Domain as a member.  All users within the Samba server's domain
authenticat successfully via AD and can access Samba shares on this
server fine.  When running the wbinfo -t command it is successful.  The
wbinfo -m command lists 14 trusted domains and the Samba server itself.
wbinfo -u and wbinfo -g show a lot of users and groups.  The getent
passwd and getent group commands show a lot of users and groups as well.

The problem is that users within one of the trusted domains cannot
access the shares, even though I have given them permissions to do so.
The domains have a two-way trust between them and windows shares
functions correctly.

My smb.conf, krb5.conf and nsswitch.conf files are shown below:

As stated, users within the same domain as the Samaba server are able to
authenticate and access shares just fine, users within trusted domains
are not able to access the shares at all, they can't see them, nor use

A sample error log file states the following:
