[Samba] samba-3.0.22 -> samba-3.0.23 pam_winbind issue(s)

Previously had samba-3.0.22 on RedHat Enterprise 4 functioning happily,
using pam_winbind to authenticate against our campus active directory
(currently only doing password authentication, account info is still
retrieved via NIS).

/etc/pam.d/system-auth attached

After upgrading to 3.0.23
* I needed to add idmap options (I used idmap backend = rid), else winbind
would only start in "netlogon proxy mode", and basically, didn't work.  ): 
Since we're not using winbind for account info currently, I don't
necessarily blame samba here for that, but is there a better/recommended
configuration for this situation?

* login/authentication attempts now (most often) ask for a password
*twice*.  ??????
