ran into MANY similar issues, turned out to be a combination of the local ldap 
libraries and bad (cheap) ethernet switches...

Seriously ought to consider joining the samba mailing list though, those guys 
were all great in helping out with our problem. There are numerous issues 
between domain control and especially so with Microsoft Office products... but 
the scope of which can be a bit off-topic on the freebsd lists, especially so 
when the bulk of the commiters/developers working on samba actively participate 
in its support via their email list.

- Just my two cents, without more details I can't really point you one way or 
the other, but joining that list should be your first step.
