Aha!  Now we may be on to something.  I did have a /tmp/.winbindd, but
after I deleted it and restarted winbindd, it was not recreated.

How can we figure out why it isn't being created?  Any Samba developers
with insight to share?

That's certainly a possibility, but it's so weird that it was working
and now it isn't.

I'm using a stripped down version of Redhat 7.2 with samba built from
2.2.5 source tar.gz.  Libc 2.2.4 and libacl/libattr are taken from
acl.bestbits.at (version 2.0.8 and 2.0.16 respectively, IIRC).

I tried rebooting into a kernel (2.4.7 instead of the 2.4.18 that the
ACLs are installed with) without the ACLs but that didn't help at all.
