[Samba] using winbind in pam.d/system-auth, double prompts for password

I am using samba-2.2.3a and samb-2.2.4 in my windows-2000 environment
and have the my linux systems configured to use winbind in addition to
standard unix for authentication. 

The problem I am seeing is that linux services and programs that prompt
for a password will prompt first for unix authentication and then a
second time for winbind authentication.

Is there anyway to using winbind and unix authentication without
requiring two separate password prompts?

My system-auth file contains:

# This file is auto-generated.
# User changes will be destroyed the next time authconfig is run.
auth        required      /lib/security/pam_env.so
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/pam_unix.so likeauth nullok
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
auth        required      /lib/security/pam_deny.so
