[Samba] Windows 7 Easy Transfer

I've installed Windows 7 64/Pro on a former XP/Pro workstation connected 
to Samba domain (Debian/Squeeze - v3.5.6). Prior to doing this, I saved 
the settings using the Windows Easy Transfer tool to create a 13G file 
on a USB stick.

I completed the install of Windows 7 and joined the workstation to the 
domain. I can log in with a Domain Admin account, and I note that the 
Domain Admins are in the local Administrators group. However when I run 
the Easy Transfer tool to restore whatever settings it can, I get 
"Windows easy transfer can't log on to your domain account".

I've seen some other complaints about Easy Transfer having some problems 
with Domains, but I'm wondering if there are any known problems with 
Samba domains?
