If you are not using WINS and your DNS search order does not
allow resolution of the name returned by the get_dcs call
you will put winbindd into an infinite loop in this function
because of the "goto again" at the end of the function.
this is in source/winbindd/winbindd_cm.c and the problem
exists in 3.0 as well as 3.2 and I assume 3.3.
Why are we doing this retry, and if it is necessary, we
need to put a max number of trys on it
