The Ubuntu samba4 package is still experimental.  You should not
install it unless you know what you are doing.

The description for the Ubuntu samba4 package on 10.04 contains this paragraph:

 These packages contain snapshot versions of Samba 4, the next-generation
 version of Samba. These should be considered _experimental_, and should
 not be used in production. In particular, no guarantees are made with
 regard to upgrades between versions.
