Sure, this will require state in the winbind client struct.
I think we can live with binding that state to the unix
domain socket connection. We should also have only one
outstanding authentication exchange on a winbind connection.

If the connection is cut, just fail the whole conversation.
This differs from the notion that the winbind connection is
stateless, but that's the price we have to pay I think.
