Hello all,

I did a fresh compile of 3.0.30, deploy'd it to a couple of servers, and then would
get the following errors in my logs:

pam_winbind(sshd): pam_winbind_request: write to socket failed!

This would happen about 5 minutes after restarted smbd, nmbd, and winbindd. For the
1st 5 minutes every seems to work fine, then after that I can't login with my AD
credentials anymore. After restarting, it'll work again for another 5 or so minutes ..

This issue was not occurring with my 3.0.28a compile :-(

Any ideas?
