What about the case where winbind does not run, we have
pdb_ldap as a DC, and we use "hide unreadable"? Every smbd
has to ask ldap itself. This is what killed the LDAP server
for me.

I think it's really better if I keep this as a custom patch,
this causes way too much trouble here.

Sorry for the noise,
