Hi there,

We just upgraded from Samba 3.0.0 to 3.0.2a last weekend. It was working
well for a short time but then I restarted smbd and winbindd, and for
some unknown reason the user/group databases became corrupt. I had to
delete the contents of /var/cache/samba to get it to work again. Anyway,
it is back up and running, but now winbindd seems to be crashing about
once a day. Attached is an excerpt from log.winbindd.

The system is running Red Hat Linux 9.0, and is connected to a Windows
2000 SP4 Active directory domain. When re-joining the domain with "net
join" I found that it would not join via AD (failed after a long
timeout) and instead had to use RPC. I didn't notice this with 3.0.0.
