It did join successfully though, as far as I can tell (net scrolls debug
information now for some reason).  It says joined INS domain at the end.
Things like getent passwd/group work.  There just is no sessionid.tdb..

Typically that fails because you have not joined the domain properly, or 
you cannot connect to th DC (ie, name lookup fails).

This just means that the client of winbindd closed the socket/whatever and 
stopped talking to winbindd.
