[Samba] Unable to Join Domain

Samba 3.0.28a (from CentOS 5.2) would not allow me to add my new domain
controller to the domain that it was supposed to be controlling.  I
uninstalled 3.0.28a and installed the 3.0.31 version (which was current at
that time).

After the upgrade, I was able to join the domain with out difficulty.

I submitted a bug-report to CentOS about this issue.

The server is a WINS server, and I tried adding the server IP to the
Advanced/WINS tab and I have the same problem.

Any other ideas?
