You are quite correct that adding the missing parameter to the hosts 
file and rejoining the domain would fix this problem.

That leaves only the 'valid users' bug you mentioned.   Of the three 
parameters following:

1. 'valid users' had to be disabled
2. 'write list' had to be present
3. 'admin users' had no effect either way

in order for me to access the test share.  I used all three quite 
frequently in 3.0.22 and prior, so I surely do hope it is something that 
can be remedied.

I greatly appreciate your time and your help.
