Quite possibly - running winbind in that environment is not trivilal - in
particulary the need to ensure it it always cleaned up etc.  We would also
need to remove winbind's dependence on nmbd running.

But anyway, I just wanted to make sure you knew exactly why it was broken,
rather than make you attempt to figure it out from the debug traces.

I hope you can fix it, as the 'security=domain' tests have been very valuable,
(it's a supprisingly good test of a broad area of samba, and automating it
has certainly caught a number of my bugs in the past).
