There's certainly a difference in the way this is 
being used from smbd/process.c, and the main loops
in nsswitch/winbindd.c and nsswitch/winbindd_dual.c

I think we need to ensure we're using this consistently
everywhere - it's a complex enough API that we need
to fully understand how it should get called in both
our main daemons.
