[Samba] Missing winbindd_privileged/pipe

I have a test machine that was running 3.0.22 (Debian testing),
providing NTLM authentication for a Squid installation.

Today I upgraded Squid to the current Debian testing version, and NTLM
authentication stopped working.

When I took a look at the /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged directory
permissions, they were fine.  Then tried to look at the pipe itself, and
it was gone.


/tmp/.winbind/pipe was still there though.

Restarting samba and winbind did not restore the pipe.  I had to
re-install samba.

A quick Google search didn't generate a whole lot of results, so I don't
think this is a common problem.

Any reason that the pipe would be deleted?  And how would a missing pipe
be re-generated without a re-install of samba?
