A restart of winbindd does not fix it. The problem sometimes appears for 
the first time after a complete computer reboot. Bug 1208 seems very ADS 
specific, but this is a NT4 environment.
Is there a problem when there is a w2k machine on the same pc in a dual 
boot configuration both integrated into the domain.
