I've spent far too long on this tearing my hair out.  Ultimately, I've 
done what I probably should have done in the first place - set up a 
Samba domain and got the offending server onto that.  Seems to work now 
(touch wood).

It'll give me a number of other benefits over and above solving the 
initial problem, and it was something I was planning on doing anyway.

Many thanks,

James Cort.
