Hello mjt and Rowland,

the thing is: it HAD the .so file in it a few versions ago.

Ive installed it and everything worked. This seems to be a new 
development on their part...

Luckily although this server is intended for production use, other parts 
are not ready yet. So it wasnt actively used (yet!).

Probably now, yeah... But older versions of their libpam-winbind had the 
.so in it! Cant find the working version anymore because my apt history 
got purged...

Bye, Matthias Kühne.
