Just replying to myself ...
Seems the problem was my root user was not enabled / did not have a
password set. So PAM had a lookup failure and moved on to pam_winbind
which confused me.
I could have swore I had a root password, but maybe it was removed at
some point. Anyway, setting a root password and console login works.
