OK, I understand what you are thinking, but it worked before he upgraded 
to 4.2.1 and I was suggesting that he reverted to the original 'winbind' 
built into the samba daemon instead of using the separate 'winbindd' 
daemon. I do not think that you can turn off the built-in 'winbind' 
except by using the separate 'winbindd' daemon.
