Does anyone have a reference to these bugs? I filed a bug against bind 
and will withdraw it. After I fixed DNS using RSAT now both DC are 
working nicely and the zone transfer backup files saved my ass this week.

If the bugs are filed already against Samba then it's probably not 
necessary to file them again inside Debian.

It's a pity it did show up on Google during my searches. Today it's all 
about finding information in time.

  - lars.

PS: Meanwhile even NFS4 is running again without me changing anything. 
Seems like it just took some time after correction of the DNS until all 
subsystems were back in sync. The system complexity is dreadful!
