[Samba] Multithreaded SAMBA/Winbind

Not 100 percent sure.   Is there a way to determine whether our current
libnss_winbind is thread-safe ?  If not, is there a way to make it .   

Thanks for the reply.

Is it really a requirement that winbind must be multi-threaded, or is it
rather that libnss_winbind must be thread-safe?
