Sometimes this happens if a small typo is happening
to one of smb.conf's parameters, testparm might not even notice it.
Another possibility is a bad download.
I would suggest you set debug level to 3 and watch.
Also, as I remember, winbind at this version (2.2.2) had
a memory leak and was "just for testing".
Hope you don't use it?
When there's more time, try to get 2.2.6 or at least 2.2.5.
Whenever possible, download the sources and compile it at the
destination machine, using appropriate config options.
