SSPI on linux is at best an emulation... SSPI is a windows thing really.

It's important to know that it's only NTLMv1 - any domain configured to 
reject the older protocol will not work with it (I expect Win2003 is 
configured like this).

Linux knows nothing of domain controllers - it merely sends the login 
information to the machine that's in the CVSROOT string.  This means 
that things like trusts cannot work unless you are in fact logging in to 
a domain controller.
