I changed those lines, and nothing seemed to change.
However, I remembered more information that I could include.
getent passwd does not list domain users, only local users.

Sample lines from /var/log/samba/log.winbindd:
[2008/02/22 14:13:21, 1] nsswitch/idmap_ad.c:idmap_ad_sids_to_unixids(613)
  Could not get unix ID
[2008/02/22 14:13:21, 1] nsswitch/winbindd_user.c:winbindd_fill_pwent(85)
  error getting user id for sid S-1-5-21-2143970516-726479814-926709054-1840
[2008/02/22 14:13:21, 1] nsswitch/winbindd_user.c:winbindd_getpwent(728)
  could not lookup domain user otherusername

Does this help at all?
Has anybody gotten Winbind 3.0.26a to authenticate successfully with Active
