I fixed a bug which could have behaviour like this in another
branch last week.  I should merge it across (or check that I
already did).  The bug was with contacting the wrong domain
controller for trusted domains so this may be what is causing
your problem.

Bummer.  OK, can you send me a stack trace of it crashing via
private email?  If you compile samba with ./configure.developer
(puts in -g and some other stuff) then run winbindd from gdb
until it crashes and send the result of the backtrace command.  A
copy of the output of winbindd at debug level = 10 would also
help.  Use the -i (for interactive mode) switch in gdb to stop
winbind forking.  I usually do this:

# gdb bin/winbindd
(gdb) run -d 10 -i
