You need to add pam_winbind.so with "cached_login" parameter to "auth"
type. See pam_winbind(8)

I added it in the common_auth file in /etc/pam.d.  And this seems to be
working.  Any knowledge on why this should be needed in other files...

Another question: will it be possible to add automounting homedirectories
as well, can you give me an example?
