A few more things I noticed:

There are LDAP lookups for what are local users.  I'm not sure if that  
is just the standard resolution order for samba, but it looks sort of  
odd.  Specifically, the "nobody" user is being searched for.

I see a few kerberos AS-REQ/REP and TGS-REQ/REP interactions.  The  
"Server Name" in the packet body looks sort of strange:

"Server Name (Unknown): krbtgt/FOO.BAR.BAZ"

Just trying to add any details I see.
