	Are you sure about this kernel version? :-)

	I'm not sure, but I believe you should put auth
options together, same for account, AFAIK, pam check the
options line by line, after the auth area ends, there is
no chance to "another auth area", you should put auth
parameters all together, like this:

@include common-auth
auth 	required	/lib/security/pam_winbind.so
@include common-account
account required	/lib/security/pam_winbind.so
