Your original bug report doesn't mention problems when joining a member
server to the domain with 'net join', it talks about problems when joining
the PDC to the domain with 'net join'.  In fact, you said that your member
servers that were joined did not have problems.  Can you explain again what
problem you're having with the member servers?
