> We are using sernet-samba-3.5.8-27, but I've tried samba/winbind packages from debian squeeze, same result, and the problem appears on centos5.5 as well. We've been running these file servers for quite a long time, not sure if there's any recent update on windows AD related which requires some additional changes on smb.conf.

See the trick that the bug submitter posted in the Debian bug (putting
"winbind separator" *after* "winbind use default domain"  in smb.conf.

That may help in your case, too....maybe....
