I have had a long term problem with my set up. winbind authentication is 

Whenever I restart one of my servers the member server refuses to 
authenticate users. Sometimes is will only authenticate some users on 
some shares. Usually by fiddling with it I can eventually get it to work 
but I can't identify the solution so I can replicate it. Once I get can 
finally get it to work it works fine until the next restart.

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS AMD 64
Samba Version 3.0.28a

I have an NT style domain with XP pro desktops.
