Good question, this is where the answer lay.

Right.  For those working with Debian, the Samba 3.0 package seems to 
work with common-file includes.  I'm presuming Debian is going that 
way?  Great idea, but the common-account include didn't have the 
winbind.so line.  Did that and now, we're golden!  obey pam restrictions 
is set to yes again, and home directories are autocreated.

Thanks much for the clue.
