Just because something isn't maintained any more, does not make it all 
false. If you do an internet search for winbind and nscd, you will find 
a lot of examples that tell you not to use winbind and nscd, they cannot 
all be false.

I do not use nscd and have never had the problem that you reported, is 
there anybody else out there that has? and if so, are they using nscd as 

All I can suggest, is that you try it without nscd and see if you get 
the problem, if you do, it is a samba problem, if you don't, it is an 
nscd problem. If you will not even try my suggestion, then, that's your 
problem! ;-)
