[Samba] credentials check failed - Samba 3.0.21

I'm getting some strange entries in my logs after upgrading to samba version
3.0.21-1. Also in 3.0.21a-1. 

The machines connection to my samba pdc are WinXP SP2 and also a
2003 server. 

For example: 

[2006/01/03 21:57:28, 0] libsmb/credentials.c:creds_server_check(159)
 creds_server_check: credentials check failed.
[2006/01/03 21:57:28, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:_net_sam_logon(667)
 _net_sam_logon: creds_server_step failed. Rejecting auth request from 
client TERMINATOR machine account TERMINATOR$ 

But the logon succeeds 

[2006/01/03 21:57:28, 0] lib/debug.c:reopen_logs(597)
 Unable to open new log file /var/log/samba/terminator.log: Permission 

But the terminator.log file is created ok 

I use the smbpasswd backend. I have client and server channel set to auto. 

Does anyone know if this behavior is a problem or a feature. Everything 
seems to work ok, except for these strange log-entries
