Thanks, Gregory.  This isn't a PAM issue as far as I know.  I believe 
the software is trying to call libnss_winbind as it tries to translate a 
UID into a user name.  Since it's 32-bit, it's looking for 
/lib/libnss_winbind.so.2, whereas a 64-bit application would look for 
/lib64/libnss_winbind.so.2.  Since /lib/libnss_winbind.so.2 doesn't 
exist, the application is failing.  I'm reading between the lines here 
since all I can see are the strace calls and end result, but that 
appears to be where the application trace diverges from a one running 
successfully with a 32-bit version of Samba.

I don't understand why I'm not finding evidence of other people having 
this problem.  Perhaps I've misdiagnosed the problem, or I'm missing 
some obvious set-up step.
