OK - that makes sense.  We have a deadlock situation here, and this
would give you exactly these errors.

When I say I have this on my PDC, I should have mentaioned that I 
don't have it in nsswtich either.  

You can get around the need for seperate unix accounts if you set
'winbind use default domain' in your smb.conf, and use pam_winbind.
