That certainly seems like the correct fix.

OK, I took a look at your change:

and I see what you're doing here. I think
there still may be some calls that can
be initiated by wbinfo that cause the
parent process to try and do domain
activity and don't go through a child

Can we work together to track these down
and make sure we invoke a child process
for them ?
