We have some workstations that login to either the NDS tree or the Samba 
domain. We also have workstations without the novell client that are 
used by users from a trusted domain. Both started experiencing the same 
problem after upgrade to samba 3.4.4 and it's still here with 3.5.2. 
Probably the way nwgina handles domain logins has something in common 
with the way logins to a trusted domain are handled. I suggest you keep 
a look at bug 7066.
