    Was this, to do with winbind and getent passwd?

    I don't think there will be any LDAP requested when doing a getent 
passwd with winbind, but I could be wrong ..

    I don't think this was meant for me, but I if it's the problem that 
I had, on RedHat 9 using the rpm from the Samba.org webpage, then do ...

cd /lib
ln -s libnss_winbind.so libnss_winbind.so.2

    And make sure that you have winbind at the end of the line passwd, 
group and hosts in /etc/nsswitch.conf, ie ...
    passwd:     files winbind
    group:      files winbind

and so on ...
