I can't confirm this.  I'm running WPKG off a samba server and the clients 
access the share with machine credentials just fine.  I've granted read access 
to the "Domain Computers" group and all is well.
The share that the clients write their logfile to is writable by "Domain 
Computers" and has the sticky bit set a client can only mess with the log 
file(s) it created.
