To me this sounds like an nsswitch issue. Reason being, if you have to
"Official" RPM install from said vendor, I'll bet that the old library
is being used.

check in /lib and /lib/security and find out if the libraries are the
old ones or not.

I do an MD5 on the files for comparison. Just for good measure (since I
am not using the "official" RPMs) I replace


I was having huge difficulty, I'd get incomplete responses from the AD
controllers, or winbind would crash. So, I just looked around at all the
files that are compiled in the samba source dir... I noticed them thar
liberaries being stubburn sonuvaguns. I dun copied over 'em with the new
ones and dadgummit, things shoor did start dancing.

At least for me, that solved the problems I had that were similar.
