That is exactly what happened, and I didn't notice any improvement with 
the alpha5 version of
libkrb5-3 over alpha4, the originator of my current problem.  In my 
testing of Samba unstable (3.4.5),
the error continues.  I intend to retry today with a fresh install of a 
recent daily build, but after reading
the contents of the bug Steve mentioned ( http://bugs.debian.org/566977 
), I doubt that the redo
will be successful.

For it to be more accurate, I did change the named of the subject 
yesterday to:
"winbind failure with libkrb5-3 1.8 in Debian *Renamed*".
