[Samba] winbind causing authentication to hang on solaris apps (HELIOS ETHERSHARE)

Hello All,
 I'm running solaris8 and samba3 with winbind configured with ads
authentication. Now samba and winbind work just great on their own and for
the most part we have no problems with it. However for some reason other
solaris applications seem to be consulting winbind for authentication even
when it is not part of nsswitch.conf. This one application in particular
named helios ethershare whenever attempting to login to the admin server
simply hangs when winbind is running even if its not in nsswitch. When we
stop winbind you can login when we have winbind running it hangs and never
responds. I'm soooo confused. If anyone can help please do, I'll send any
info you need eg logs, configs whatever you need.
