Thanks - that was it - the two blank lines below the line of stars were part
of the patch (a fact I was able to confirm by comparing with the CVS web ref
Martin posted) but I'd missed them out.

Patch applied - now recompiling Samba ... done.  And now it works fine - I
can restart winbindd to my heart's content and "/tmp/.winbindd" gets created
with the right permissions and everybody's happy  :)

Thanks for bearing with me.
