I have a problem with winbindd that freezes such that no windows  
authentication is possible.
The auth.log file says
     write to socket failed!
     internal module error (retval = 3

i have tried with both debian sarge 3.0.14a packages, and i compiled  
my own from the source
version 3.0.20

I have tried -Y on winbindd, i have looked over the smb.conf file, i  
tried googling for "write to socket failed"
but nothing really usefull came up :( only that others have had the  
same problem previously in time.
