I have winbind authenticating against a W2K Domain Controller.  It works
just fine with 2.2.3.  After upgrading to 2.2.4 I can no longer authenticate
agains a W2K domain account.  Everything compiles, installs, and starts
successfully Under 2.2.4.  wbinfo -u gives a correct list of users, wbinfo
-t verifies that the secret is good.  Howerver, running 'getent passwd' and
'getent group' yield only the local users and groups, whereas under 2.2.3
they yielded all local and W2K domain users.  Any ideas?  Below is my
