It worked for me in a test setup I had a month ago:

Made a copy of our main CentOS 5 server, replace samba with samba3x,
and I was able to join XP and W7 (with registry patch) to the domain.

The samba server was set up as a WINS server.

I think there was a problem that the default location of some
of the samba files have been moved going from samba to samba3x
(smbpasswd maybe?).
