Hmm, i dont know for sure, but based on my google magic, i say your correct.
Lowering the samba DC domain level should help you out.
If someone can confirm this, thanks!
But i must mention.
Adding a "unsupported" ms 2008 server as dc... wil cost you ms licenses..
I suggest if possible, add a new samba AD DC.
Add the windows server as member, and you dont have to lower the domain level.
