Hi Quinn

The Samba doco describes SSO as the holy grail for admins (sic)

S4 caters for Windows out of the box. To get it to talk to Linux clients 
on the same terms takes a little longer. We have a 12.4-SSO 
Ubuntu-xp-7-setup working. I know how you feel. It took us the best part 
of 6 months to get it going with s4. When you do, you can set up an 
Ubuntu client in a matter of minutes and wonder what all the fuss was 
about. So don't give up, you are almost there. You are making all the 
right noises, especially with nslcd/nss-ldapd. We work with limited 
resources but are more than willing to help those go down the same road. 
Offlist or via our blog if you like.
