I think you should be aware that some changes on Debian (and therefore 
Ubuntu packages) has been going on in etch (current stable). I don't 
know in terms of RH, but at least in my case, ADS didn't work. I have to 
test the new packages that has been posted on the samba website and will 
be included soon on stable branch of Debian

Just to point out that might be something broken
