BTW, The corresponding log I see on winbind log is...

tdb(/var/lib/samba/winbindd_cache.tdb): tdb_rec_read bad magic 0x42424242 at
[2009/09/04 10:37:25,  1] lib/util_tdb.c:tdb_validate_and_backup(1437)
  tdb '/var/lib/samba/winbindd_cache.tdb' is invalid

Usually, removing the tdb files and restarting winbind fixes the issue.
