    Well I eventually solved the problem by removing the XP box from the 
domain and then having it re-join. However, I still don't quite 
understand the details of what went on. "net getlocalsid" gave me a 
specific SID for the domain. I didn't know how to obtain the domain SID 
in the Windows box, but I tried sysinternals.com's NewSID. It showed me 
the same SID before and after rejoining the domain, so I really didn't 
understand what went on :(
