I think our active directory setup is ok, since it's servicing a few 
thousand computers. Our issue is that when an automated build system 
connects via sserver (maybe 2 connections at a time) any subsequent sspi 
requests fail with an auth rejection. The load on the server goes high, 
but it is definitely still very useable (as evidenced by any further 
sserver connections that work fine). 

is this a winbind limitation maybe? the logs aren't telling us much of 
anything and we're not even sure where to look at this point....
