Well I changed the server name and it resolved my problem, so I'm guessing something was left over from the old install. No idea where though, anyone any clue?

Sounds about it. I ran net ads leave first, then changed samba and /etc/hosts and reran kinit too before rejoining, I dunno if that's required.

Not sure how much help I'm being, it's nice to know I'm not the only one.

Did you try the testparm thing?
