OK, after reading Volkers patch, I got the feeling that the problem 
wasn't actually a samba problem, so I went googling.

If I change these lines in /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

ChallengeResponseAuthentication no
#PasswordAuthentication yes


ChallengeResponseAuthentication yes
PasswordAuthentication yes

restart ssh: 'service ssh restart' on Debian wheezy

Now try and login via ssh:

root at dc01:~# ssh user3 at
Password expired.  You must change it now.
Enter new password:
Enter it again:

No spinning winbind PID

Have I found the cure ?
