Hi Volker, it seems pretty easy to reproduce, just throw up a test DC in 
a VM, create a user and set the password to need to be changed at next 
login. Now create a member server in another VM and join this to the DC. 
now open three terminals, ssh into the member server as root from one 
and start 'top' , ssh into the member server as root from another and 
finally attempt to ssh into the member server as the user you created 
from the last one.
Now watch the 'top' running in the other terminal, it should show 
winbind using 100% CPU (or very close to it) at this point go to the 
open root terminal and run gdb.

I can easily reproduce it on an X86_64 machine running Samba Version 

I get this from gdb:

But of course, this is probably me trying to teach my granny to suck 
eggs :-)
