Bingo! That fixed my issues! 

Upgrading to GA failed, and I did a step-by-step upgrade and reached problems at RC6. 

I have a bunch of Linux machines joined to the domain using winbind, and as of RC6 they all fail to load user information ("id username" returned no users). 

The majority of winbind versions I am running are 3.5.10-125.el6 from the CentOS 6.3 repo.
