I hope so!  You're right, but the smb.conf here sets them explicitly:

   log file              = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   private dir           = /usr/local/samba/private
   smb passwd file       = /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
   lock directory        = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
   state directory       = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
   cache directory       = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
   pid directory         = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
   ncalrpc dir           = /usr/local/samba/var/ncalrpc

And yes, I'm sure that this is the smb.conf that's being used. :)

Before posting I investigated whether perhaps something like this was
the problem, but if it is I haven't found it yet.

Unless there are better ideas my game plan now is to apply all the
Debian patches one-by-one, until either winbindd 3.6.6 works in this
system after patching, or else it fails like the binary provided by
Debian.  Of course it might fail NOT like the binary provided by
Debian, but I'll cross that bridge if and when I come to it. :)
