Hi Ray,
i had a vpn based on openvpn and tap interfaces, with a trust between
two samba domains this worked like charme , the conection was resetted
2 times a day by the adsl provider.
If the trust brakes on a longer timeout you have to reestablish the 
trust which causes a lot of traffic over the vpn, also it can be very 
frustration in use if the the trust is not in sync, cause it may lead
to failures at logon , share rights etc
Best Regards
