this is a email I was sent by a michael at hp on 23/1/2002, which is
basically what I done.
In the meanwhile I got an additional hint about how
to work around the libpam_unix.1 issue, which is not
tolerating unknown nsswitch backends to be configured
in /etc/nsswitch.conf when doing password management.
This makes /usr/bin/passwd stop working.
In case LDAP is not being used, one might move
/usr/lib/libnss_ldap.1 aside (if present) and create a
symbolic link from /usr/lib/libnss_ldap.1 to
Consequently, ldap should then be configured instead
of winbind in /etc/nsswitch.conf.
It's kind of ugly hack, but the only workaround
available right now...

I think this is where your problem is. ldap is not winbindd.
It looks like PAM on your version of HP-UX does not handle arbritrary NSS
shared library stuff.
