I might be way off here, but did you know you have to prefix usernames
with your workgroup and the winbind separator? With your config/example
this means you'd have to log on as MYREALM+stile. I'm not using
pam/winbind with ssh, but it works fine with ftp, netatalk and apache
(just implemented a little webapp using it).
