This is probably of no use to you, but, who knows.  I had the same thing 
happen on one of my CentOS 3 boxes; same errors.  I generally like to roll my 
own RPMs from source RPMs, and use the source RPM from sernet.  As the 
machine in question is VERY old (Dell PW 6100/200 - test machine that 
otherwise works very well), I couldn't do this without the machine hanging.  
So, I DL'd the full sernet RPMs.  I believe I tried both the RedHat and 
CentOS RPMs and ... I got the exact same messages as you.  After struggling 
to figure out what the problem was, the light bulb finally lit.  I copied 
over RPMs I had created on another CentOS 3 box and ,,, all errors vanished, 
and I was able to connect the box to my AD network.

This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
