I tested winbind_find_dc_v2.patch in my test environment with 3.0.11 
and winbind seems to work as it was 3.0.10 ;) 
Samba is a domain member in a W2k3 AD and my XP clients get their 
shares (and have access to their files) on the Samba server. In fact I don't
a difference between 3.0.10 and 3.0.11 patched with the winbind patch.

The DC's in my production environment are behind routers that doesn't
route NETBIOS, so with the original 3.0.11 I would have gained a lot of 
problems ;)
In my test environment I have only one subnet and there I used 
'disable netbios = yes' in smb.conf to simulate my real environment, so
no DC's can be found via NETBIOS.

Where is "make proto" and "make" needed for? I didn't use it and 3.0.11 
compiled well and winbind seem to work well... (both on RHL9 and FC2).
