I was nearly locked out since last night hehe.
Redhat 7.0 adds their own vendor extensions to pam in the form of module.
This didn't like
I worked this out and now I am using vanilla PAM from site
without any problems in other services.

I'll make sure I add an account entry for winbind as well.

Any ideas about the dl_open errors with pam_ntdom_auth ? I'll recompile
samba-tng with nis / nis+ for good luck this time. Is ntdom_auth obsolete
even from the TNG source?

wbinfo -t  not returning with a nice message is bad isn't it? Will this
affect winbind performing authentication?

Still hacking away here :-)
