[Samba] Domain Browsing broken after upgrade from 3.0.10 -> 3.0.21

Or maybe it was the upgrade from FC2 -> FC4..........

I recently was running a FC2 Samba PDC and OpenLDAP, using Samba-3.0.10.

After I upgraded the server from FC2 to FC4 samba was broken and
wouldn't load because it was complaining about a library file not
existing.  (libldap.so.2) I believe.. Sure enough it wasn't there.  So
I had to recompile Samba 3.0.10 again.  Well the compile failed for
3.0.10 with the following error
./configure --prefix=/opt/samba-3.0.10 --with-ldapsam
# make
Using FLAGS =  -O  -Iinclude -I/usr/src/samba-3.0.10/source/include
-I/usr/src/samba-3.0.10/source/smbwrapper  -I. -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_GNU_SOURCE -I/usr/src/samba-3.0.10/source
      LIBS = -lcrypt -lresolv -lnsl -ldl
      LDSHFLAGS = -shared -Wl,-Bsymbolic
      LDFLAGS =
Compiling dynconfig.c
In file included from include/smb.h:1679,
                 from include/includes.h:819,
                 from dynconfig.c:21:

So i downloaded the latest version of samba, 3.0.21c and it compiled
just fine but when i started the SMB server, I wasn't able to browse
the servers within the domain.  They just wouldn't show up.  What I do
in my WinXP pro clients is click:

Start->My Network Places->Entire Network->Microsoft Windows Network->BUNSIZE

I see the BUNSIZE domain, but as soon as I click BUNSIZE I get a blank
screen.  In version 3.0.10 I used to see my two servers, OSCAR &

However, when I put in the Exploder address bar, \\OSCAR &
\\HEFE-WEIZEN, I am able to browse those servers.  They just aren't
showing up in the Domain view.

Is there some kind of special upgrade procedure that I was supposed to
follow to maybe update the secret.tdb or is it just as easy as
creating a new one?

Also, when I try to browse the domain ON the FC4 server, I am unable
to see it and the servers.  So this just doesn't seem to be a Winblows

All firewalls are off in the server.

I am wondering if FC4 has some hidden security features that I am not aware of..
