Günther created a Wiki entry about Samba3 and Windows 7. Please see

Currently, there are some issues concerning trust relationships with
Windows 2008 (R2) servers. Some of these are fixed in Samba 3.3.9 and will
be fixed in Samba 3.4.3 (scheduled for Thursday). Maybe you would like to
retest with Samba 3.4.3...

Thanks for your feedback!
