Hi Martin,

I'm afraid that I don't any information to offer you.  But I want to add
that our setup is very similar to yours.  Samba DC with an OpenLDAP
backend (except our version of Samba is 3.4.8).  Client machines are a mix
of Windows XP and Windows 7.  And we are seeing the same error messages in
the logs.  Your comment regarding changing the domain admin username and
password is troubling.  I'll have to see if we have the same issue on
