[Samba] Winbind will not start when network disconnected

I'm preparing some boxes for production and have configured samba with 
winbind for ADS domain authentication but I've noticed that winbind will 
not start when the network is not connected.  I think the proper 
operation should be to start but (of course) not function and log the 
inability to connect to the pdc.

Instead I get this:

PANIC: Could not fetch our SID - did we join?
lots of back trace information

and the failure to start.
