[Samba] pam_winbind says I need new password

Hello again :-)

So my understanding is that somehow the pam library throws this flag to
pam_winbind for some reason thus even if the account is not expired.  I do
not have direct access to the DC that we are doing authentication from so
testing a workaround is difficult.

Am I correct in assuming that the only way to fix this problem is to set the
account expiration far in the future?  Is there anyway pam_winbind can be
configured to ignore this flag.

ie: i tried /etc/pam.d/system-auth
password    [default=ok new_authtok_reqd=ignore]
/lib/security/$ISA/pam_winbind.so try_first_pass use_authtok

but no different behaviour observed.

considering I cant access this bug report, is there anyway I can find more
