Winbind stoped working after two weeks?

Im having a weird problem that has occured just in the last 12 hours with
Winbind on Samba 2.2.2.
Ive been running Winbind solid for two weeks and its been working great, but
for some wierd reason today its not looking up groups or users on my
Windows2000 domain. The wbinfo command gives:
/usr/local/samba/bin/wbinfo -u
Error looking up domain users
/usr/local/samba/bin/wbinfo -g
Error looking up domain groups

Strangly not more than 12 hours ago it was spiting out my NT domain users
and groups just fine as it had for two weeks. I did reboot both my
linux/samba machine and my Windows2000 PDC/Active Directory server but this
did not help. I also deleted the machine acocunt for samba system from the
PDC and had samba rejoin the domain. Unfourtunatly even after it said it
succeded in joining the domain Winbind still refuses to look up domain users
or groups from NT.

Has anyone seen this behavior or have any suggestions?
