To follow up on this question, I have noticed that Gentoo's Samba startup 
scripts (the original poster is running Gentoo) do not properly stop winbind. 
So simple doing "/etc/init.d/samba restart" after upgrading could possibly 
cause problems. Do a "/etc/init.d/samba stop", then manually kill the 
winbindd processes, followed by a start.
I plan to look into this when I get some time and will update the patchset I 
uploaded to the current version bump bug report if I solve the issue.
