[Samba] winbind between trusted domains really acting up under

I'm starting to see some really weird things happen on a range of
Samba-3.0.28a servers installed as "security=ADS" members of a variety
of domains. This was working last time I checked (weeks ago), but
something's happened. Windows Updates tend to spring to mind more than
Samba upgrades as a cause...
On all of them, "wbinfo -t" is happy, "net ads testjoin" is happy,
"wbinfo -m" returns expected trusted domains. Looking up members of
their own domains appears 100% reliable. "allow trusted domains = Yes"
What I am seeing is that the Samba host cannot resolve AD accounts from
other trusted domains correctly anymore. "wbinfo -i dom\\username"
returns "Could not get info" instead of an answer, and there appears to
be a big disconnect with mappings between SIDS and UIDs.
wbinfo -S S-1-5-21-725345543-602609370-839522115-10663
...returns a UID, and
wbinfo -s S-1-5-21-725345543-602609370-839522115-10663
..returns "DOM\\username", but
wbinfo -i "DOM\\username"
returns "Could not get info". So it looks like winbind has
SID->UID->name - but can't do the opposite? Also, looking at
get_trust_pw_clear: could not fetch clear text trust account password
for domain DOM

error getting user info for sid
So it looks like Samba as an ADS member in one domain is attempting to
make a clear text connection to domain controllers in another domain and
failing. Well that makes me think of two questions:
1. why does samba (as a member server) even have to know about other
domains? I would have thought it would just throw the problem at it's
local DC's to deal with?
2. why is it using clear text? I assume that's the problem. It is
compiled against Kerberos, and whatever else normally happens, so I
don't understand why it's using clear text. "testparam" shows nothing
that stands out as being behind this, and the logs show no other
errors/failures besides this.
Any ideas? This is CentOS4 systems with samba-3.0.28a. Thanks!
