Replying to my own message here to explain, for the sake of others,  
how I resolved this issue.
1) Backed up /etc/samba
2) Completely removed all the saba rpms.
3) Downloaded the samba src rpm
4) Downloaded any packages needed to satisfy dependancies (postgresql  
in my case)
5) Built new rpms
6) installed all the previously built rpms with the exception of  
samba3-vscan, and samba3-winbind (these weren't required in my case)
7) restored /etc/samba
8) I had to rejoin the domain with the test clients after this (not  
sure why I had to do this) as the previous machine accounts were no  
longer valid. Since I was still configuring the server, and in the  
testing stage this was no big deal for me, but for a larger network  
it may be worth finding a way around this one.

No other changes were made, and domain admins are now recognized as  
administrators on the local client PCs.

Thanks for all the replies. I hope this is helpful to someone.
