AFAIK wbinfo -u queries the AD server for all users, I don't think it
checks any caches.  It looks like this account has disappeared from AD.

If not, you could try temporarily deleting/moving all the winbind .tdb
files which would cause the cache to be wiped and rebuilt (and all your
UIDs to change, until you put the old files back again) just to see
whether the cache is at fault or whether your account has disappeared
from AD.
