G'Day Volker,

I've noticed two recent autobuild failures showing a segfault in winbindd.  

They started only this week (I've checked back to the start of July)

Giving that the failure is in operating on a netlogon pipe and the
recent changes that I reviewed for you to the winbind code, 
I wondered if you would might be able to look into this to see if you
can work out what is going wrong?

Is it possible that cm_connect_netlogon_transport() returns without
setting the conn->netlogon_pipe?
