This problem seems to only occur in Samba 3.5.3 on a certain machine.  I have two machines, both running Opensuse 11.2 and using the OBS Samba repository.  One of them allows me to join the AD domain, the other throws the error in the previous message.  No idea what's going on - Samba packages, krb5 packages, nss, etc., are all exactly the same.
