Turns out the machines in question attempt to access the samba share
using their "machine" account in AD, and it appears samba has a problem
with this based on the plethora of these entries I'm seeing in samba's logs:

[2005/10/09 15:30:24, 1] smbd/sesssetup.c:reply_spnego_kerberos(250)
   Username DOMAIN\MACHINE-1$ is invalid on this system

Now to go off to look in smbd/sesssetup.c to see what criteria is used
to determine if a username is "invalid" or not.
