OK - changing the FSTRING_LEN should work, but when I did this in
the SAMBA_TNG branch and started up winbind, it didn't even find
the pdc for my test setup which looked like a serious bug in the
SAMBA_TNG brach.  

I've been doing a lot of work in APPLIANCE_TNG and there may be
some bug fixes that haven't been merged from the appliance branch
to the samba branch.  Hence the merge issues.  )-:
