I am on Debian 11 with KDE (sddm).

When I reported the issue in July 2021 it was Debian 10 with KDE.

However the issue also occurred on console login if remember well, so 
should not be related to the graphical display manager.

After Winbind I tried SSSD which worked fine for this issue, but it had 
other issues, so I abandoned that as well. In the end I concluded that a 
Linux domain-member laptop is not a good idea yet. Too much chance I 
cannot login when I am at a remote location or fully disconnected, so I 
reverted to local-users on Linux laptops, not ideal either but it works :-)
