[Samba] invalid permissions on socket directory/var/lib/samba/winbindd_privileged

Ironically enough I also had this same issue this morning, ive traced it
back to a howto get squid and samba authenticating off a windows PDC. In the
faq it tells you to chown root:squid and chmod 770

Set it back to 750, winbindd would now start and squid was quite happy to
authenticate still.

This (0755) is incorrect.  It must be (0750).

I think this may be incorrect in the book.
