FYI... downgrading to samba 3.0.21b fixed the problem, upgrading again 
to 3.0.23a makes it break, and downgrading one last time to 3.0.21b 
fixes it.

Not sure if it's a problem with samba, or if Fedora's package is 
borked... I'm kinda assuming that the answer from the list is going to 
be "build 3.0.23b from source and call us in the morning." Perhaps I'll 
give that a try and report my results back here.
