On the problem Windows boxen:
Besides setting:
to No
Also set:
But first test to see if the info below doesn't solve the problem before going 
around hacking the registry on the Windows systems (and let us know!).

I use the following in my Samba PDC's:
os level = 255
announce version = 5.9

This was posted previously on the list:
"I find that values over 64 ofter return unexpected
results, and I've found that my Samba servers don't lose elections in
recent memory and I usually leave them at the default value in smb.conf
of 33."
Haven't personally verified that anything over 64 should be a problem. That 
poster, myself, and others (I guess) were hoping for an official comment from 
the developers.
