Subject: winbind interfaces bug and machine account problem


I think I've found a bug in winbind (yesterday's cvs head).  If there is
more than one ip address bound to an interface winbind will only broadcast
on the subnet of the first address bound, regardless of the interfaces
setting in smb.conf.

Multiple ip addresses don't seem to cause the rest of samba any problems.
A workaround is to change the order at which the addresses are loaded and
winbind is able to find my domain controller now.

A problem I have now is that wbinfo -t says:

Secret is bad

I was seemingly able to join the domain okay with smbpasswd -j.  Any ideas are appreciated.
