Sorry for my ignorance, but I'm not sure what you mean by client here, but 
assume winbind is a client to nss? I do know that winbind from 2.2.8 *did* 
run with libnss_winbind.so v2.2.5 in place, resulting in broken getent passwd 
output, where only domain user ids were shown. Putting the 
libnss_winbind.so from v2.2.8 was all that was required to fix the problem...
