[Samba] Windows XP x64 (64bit) cannot join samba domain

   I`m having an issue trying to get Windows XP 64bit to join my samba

I`m running Version 3.0.31-0.fc8, I currently have no problems joining
my 32bit xp workstations to the domain, but xp x64 current refuses with
"parameter is incorrect" error, I`ve turn debug ouput on but can`t see
any obvious errors in the samba logs.

Checking the ldap entry shows the machine is disabled with [DW       ],
resetting/deleting this entry doesn`t help, as it is recreated in the
same state.

Does any one know of a solution to this problems?
