As far as I'm aware, wbinfo -ug is returning what it is supposed to.  I
don't think this is the problem.  Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Mine are doing the same thing.  Can you check the running size when you
start it and also as it gets older?  winbindd grows over time (looks like a
leak, but I'm not willing to say that yet).  I'm looking into why, but have
no answers.  If someone has an idea about what this might be, I'd be happy
to chat with you and do what I can to help find this.
