[Samba] winbind causes Linux to lockup when connectivity to AD is lost (subject line edited for clarity)

Just a FYI, but this looks an awful lot like the bug I reported months ago


Basically I'm running Fedora11 with no local accounts (beyond root) -
relying on winbind. On occasion winbind appears to "hang" - and no local
access works - including root - which shouldn't need winbind to succeed!
Normally I have to reboot to fix, however if I was lucky enough for it
to happen before my screensaver kicked in, then simply restarting
winbind fixes the problem.
