nscd caches passwords and dns lookups, and similar things -
it's part of libc. It seems like samba is trying to access 
the nscd cache, and is failing. By adding the attribute
"nscd_client_domain" to the proper macro call in the policy, 
it will make it work. 

I realize that you possibly do not know how to do this
yourself, but my email was addressed to the list
with the purpose that Dan Walsh (the policy maintainer)
may see and fix it.

The other things which you posted are less clear, since
they have to do with samba writing to the terminal,
and samba erasing its logs. It may be the case that
we should not allow those things.
