[Samba] winbind stops ? hangs ?

I'm currently installing a samba server in an existing WIN2K domain. 
(no active dir ... YET !)
to get the user names, i use the winbind deamon.

It seems the deamon hangs or stops working after some time.

anyone got an idea on how to trace what is happening ?
this really is a *huge* domain over here, so that might be 
a problem as well.

also when i've configured the winbind setting in /etc/nsswitch.conf
a login to the linux takes for ages or not able to login at all.
the 'for ages' i can live with ... with the 'no login at all' i can't.
the machine is only supposed to be samba server 
(ie users should not login to linux)

i'm using samba 2.2.3a  -   SuSE Linux 7.0 on a s390

any help is appreciated.
