Stared at the code, but I didn't find any code path where we would
leave cli->binding_handle uninitialized. It seems that in all three
instances "h" is 500000000000401, which sounds like a memory
corruption that might come from anywhere. Is there a way we can run
the flaky check (or a private autobuild) with winbind under valgrind?
