What else is there?  Samba is in "domain" security mode, right?  I'm no
expert, but I think that implies Kerberos.  And if I'm wrong, I think it
implies somehow using RPC in some form ... in which case I expect you to
have the same behavior either way.

Point is, you're not using some funky ldap or whatever mechanism with any
weird schema.  You haven't mentioned winbind, so I assume you're not using
it.  My expectation is smooth sailing - on the samba side - not so much on
the NT side.  ;-)
