[Samba] Windows refusing samba server

Hi George, my machines are coming back since I've rebooted the machine. 
Some others don't. Because there is an unspecified interval of time 
between dying and reviving machines, I am sure it's a kerberos issue. 
But I don't have any idea where this error is located. I hope the 
machines are all coming back to productivity and stay at this point.

My samba is running as a domain member server using nss_ldap (openldap, 
cyrus_sasl) on a gentoo box. If someone notice the same problems: please 
post, I am not sure that the status quo will hold.
