So if you install an lmhosts file pointing to for 
the local domain, and run winbindd to allow non-root access 
to the priviledged pipe this should be ok.  The only problem 
I can think of is the name_status_find() calls to get the name 
of the DC.  The actual connections don't need this of course.
