[Samba] flood of (auth in progress) connections from unresponsive windows client crashing samba

I believe the core of my issue was not setting up the 'trusted' machine accounts for the Windows clients correctly. After adding the local unix account manually for each client on the samba server and running "smbpasswd -a -m machine_name", the issue seems to be resolved.
Thank you Rowland for your help!

The lookup fails because it is looking up user info for a computer, the
line is coming from 'create_token_from_username', which is in
'source3/auth', so you are going to get this every time a computer
connects (i.e. a lot)
