[Samba] BDC & passwd changes

I have a network setup with one Samba PDC and two Samba BDCs separated by routers (ref http://www.cybersource.com.au/users/mikef/samba/). In this test environment the Samba servers all use the master OpenLDAP server on the PDC, but the production system will have OpenLDAP servers (using master-slave replication) on all Samba servers.

I can't get the Windows XP client to change a password or enroll on the domain when connected to either of the BDC's networks, however both functions work fine when connected directly to the PDC's network. If the XP client is enrolled onto the domain while connected to the PDC's network then it successfully authenticates against the domain on all three networks, incl after being relocated to either BDC network.

Anyone got any ideas what my problem might be?
