What errors do you see in the winbindd log(s)? We've suffered similar 
problems with 3.0.21b and AFAIK they're now fixed in 3.0.21c (check the 
release notes for socket-related fixes). We'd need to see your log to 
tell whether your 3.0.14a problems are the same.

BTW, what's the content of your krb5.conf (if any)?
