[Samba] winbind stop working after some hours

Hi, I am trying to use squid proxy with validation on win 2003 active 
directory to filter internet navigation and for it I installed an ubuntu 
10.04 server 64 bit with samba.
My installation looks ok, the server is joined to the AD, ntlm is able 
to validate user, wbinfo report corret information and squid works good.
The problem arise after some hours: winbind become not able to resolv 
info for users and to retrieve info for groups, so squid become not able 
to know id a user belong to a group allowed to navigate and refuse 
Restarting winbind solve the problem for some hours.
wbinfo report no particular problem; just give back messages like "could 
not get info for user xx" and also setting debuglevel to various numbers 
reports (to me) no significant clues.
I made a workaround scheduling a restart of winbind service at every 
half hour and it works, but is not so elegant ...
Do you have any suggestion to solve this problem?
Thank you
