Is it or not? My last tries failed.

Try to add:
host msdfs = yes
in [Global] section.

Also try to access your sysvol folder this way 
\\mydomain.tld\sysvol\mydomain.tld\Policies in windows XP and then in 
windows 7.

Finally you can send us a tcpdump/tshark capture between you windows 
client and samba server, see here for instruction on tracing:
