we have several issues here depending on one of our servers (2008). E.g. 
domainnames (username at domainname) has to be written in capital lettres when 
connecting to shares...

did you try to set this to a higher level (and restart samba)? I always use 99 
so i get large logfiles with nearly all informations i need. The clientlog 
(log.clienthostname or log.clientip) could be interresting.
