OS X Active Directory login issues - UnBind

I've seen this problem ever since we started putting Apple Macs on the Active Directory domain. Every now and then OS X will shake at login. I've rebooted and reset PRAM, fsck -yf, checked the time and date, and looked at the active directory settings in Directory Utility. The only real fix is to "Unbind" it and then "Bind" it again.

The only thing which comes to mind is perhaps the length of time it is not logged into is too long and the computer gets removed from Active Directory. Re-binding it puts it back in the list's.
