[Samba] SuSE 10.2 in a Win2k3 domain - odd lockout issue

I have a SuSE 10.2 machine that I have successfully
added to our Win2k3 domain.  I can log in
successfully, and the DC logs show successful
authentication.  I can see shares and everything seems
to be just fine.

The problem is, approx. every 24 hours, the DC will
mysteriously lock my user ID, and I will have to get
an admin to go in and unlock me.  The DC is not
showing anything like three sequential failed logins,
or anything like that.

If anyone might have an idea of where to look, it
would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, my being allowed to use Linux is with a
"don't ask, don't tell" policy.  No contacting help
desk for support of any kind and can't ask for any
changes to any systems to enable Linux compatibility.

Again, any help is appreciated.
