[Samba] Samba as PDC with XP Client - Logon requires reboot - Help Please

Hi, I'm running the latest version of Samba with a tdbsam backend,
configured not to use roaming profiles. Two different XP clients (SP2)
are joined to the domain ok but users can only logon by rebooting before
entering their logon details.  When users logoff and try to logon again
(or logon as a different user on the same machine) they get the standard
message 'windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain
controller is down or because your computer account was not found.
Please try again later .. ' etc.  Have tried fiddling with registry
entries and permissions but can't get this problem to go away.  Any
ideas on this would be appreciated. Cheers.
