Are you talking about samba can authenticate with NT domain users using 
winbind but not local root? Can you do stop/restart winbind with root?

If so, we are seeing the same problem too despite /etc/nsswitch.conf 

passwd:     files nisplus nis winbind
shadow:     files nisplus nis
group:      files nisplus nis winbind

Samba 3.0.x seems to have change something. I have digged through the 
documents, Chapter 10. Account Information Databases seem to mention 
something about this, but does address this strange behavior. It works 
under Samba 2.7.x, 2.8.x. I'm thinking of downgrade to 2.8.x until this 
is sorted out in 3.0.x. Is this a known bug? Googling does show anything 8(
