It doesn't make sense:

1) why should I need to run smbd if I'm not providing cifs services to 
other computers?

2) why does winbindd work for many days even with smbd not running? 
Shouldn't it just barf at startup or after a short wait if it really 
needs smbd?

In any case I prefer my plaster instead of running a service that I 
don't need and could open the server to several vulnerabilities.
