I'm aware of the Kerberos time requirements and do a 'net time set -S 
w.x.y.z' with the ADS from cron.hourly, so this is not the issue.  I can 
join the domain, which uses Kerberos, so Kerberos is happy.  I can also 
do 'kinit username at DOMAINNAME', but 'smbclient -k ...' fails, 'wbinfo 
-u' returns nothing and login doesn't work since the username isn't found.

I'm beginning to suspect that it is an ADS configuration issue and has 
something to do with how I define security groups, which causes winbindd 
to blow up.  So, I'm going to try the latest version of Samba and see 
how that goes, if I can just figure out how to compile the thing with 
the options that RedHat needs.

Anyhoo, glad to hear that it is stable for you, so it must be something 
I do different in the configuration.
