the key lines :

?
so fallback to default "classic" does not work by default, 
?
edit /etc/default/sernet-samba 
change SAMBA_START_MODE="none' ?to SAMBA_START_MODE="classic" 
?
and your able to start smbd and nmbd 
but.. also winbind starts now correctly. 
?
check if the installer?will do its work now. 
?
apt-get -f install

Nope.. but again sernet-samba-winbind IS installed and works correctly. 
and debian winbind is removed. 
?
the dirty fix: 
?
cd /var/lib/dpkg
cp status status.original 
edit status 
search for?? "Package: sernet-samba-winbind" 
change : "Status: install ok half-configured" to "Status: install ok installed"
?
save 
?
check again 
apt-get -f install
?
and..?

my only question.? 
?
Removing samba-common-bin (99:4.2.3-7) ... ?? 
Removing samba-common (99:4.2.3-7) ...? 
Removing libwbclient0:amd64 (99:4.2.3-7) ...
?
why do we see here the version numers of sernet-samba, and not the debian samba version numbers. 
a check : dpkg -l | grep sernet 
show that the needed packages are installed. 
sernet-samba-common????????????? 99:4.2.3-7
?
By checking my logs shows all service started correcly and all works. 
?
I?only noticed the winbind entry in my pam setup is gone. 
?
add it again:?? It would be nice if this goes in the sernet packages of winbind.. named : libpam-sernet-winbind ( or add it with the sernet-winbind packages ) 
?
