it is normal for ADDC3 object to go to deleted object. The GUID 
reference in the repsfrom repsto attribute is still there however. It 
should go away by itself after some time.

If you want to make it go faster you can run "samba_kcc". It will 
recheck the NTDSConnection and the repsFrom repsTo attribute and should 
clean them. ADDC3 will still be in Deleted Objects but won't be 
referenced anymore and the spurious message should go away.
