[THIN] Setting NDS Preferred Tree changes default domain...

We run the Novell client 4.83 SP1 on our Metaframe XP servers in an NDS for
NT domain architecture and have set the default logon domain in the client
settings to domain "A" which is our accounts domain.  The servers reside in
domain "B".  When we set the preferred NDS tree at the farm level, it
overrides the Novell client settings switching the default logon domain to
domain "B" where our servers reside.  This prevents pass-thru authentication
from working properly.  We have explored all registry keys where the domain
name is recorded, and have tried to statically set the default domain in the
registry to no avail.  Nothing seems to work.  All efforts are overridden by
the farm level NDS setting.

Anyone have any idea on how we can get around this?

<We know, we know - DON'T USE NDS - as much as we would rather not use it,
unfortunately we're stuck with it.>
