You are not the first to say that.  Many others, including me, are 
having winbind problems after upgrading to 3.5.x.  Interestingly enough, 
the problems are quite disparate between users; i.e., everyone seems to 
have a different problem; and there appears to be no consistent cause 
and no easy answer.  If you're curious, Debian forwarded my bug to: 
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7818  (Thanks, Christian!).
