Hello everyone:

	I am having problems with winbind.  I have followed all of the directions, 
configuring, compiling, and running samba and winbind.  However, when I do 
the winbind test using "wbinfo -u" or "wbinfo -g" I just get the standard 
"Error talking to domain controller...".  BTW, smb.conf is configured 
properly and was successfully added to my WIN domain.  I am also sharing 
files successfully.
	I did some frustrating troubleshooting and noticed that the PID stored in the 
winbind.pid file is always one less than the actual PID for winbind.  I have 
restarted winbind many times to verify.
	Is anyone else having this problem?  I have compiled samba 2.2.4 on an Intel 
with RedHat 7.3.  The PIDs for all others (nmbd and smbd) are being stored 
	I have compiled samba 2.2.4 previously on my laptop with RH 7.2 and all works 
fine when running wbinfo.  I suspect this is due to RH 7.3, but cannot 
	Any help/info would be great.  Thanks in advance.
