Package:  winbind
Version:  3.0.23c-2
Severity: important

Usertags: incorrect-dependency

With dependency based boot sequencing, I discovered what I believe is
a bug in the init.d scripts. The dependencies are not completely
correct.  The daemons log to syslog, and should start after the syslog
collector is started.  Also, the dependency on $local_fs is redundant
($remote_fs depend on $local_fs), and can be dropped.

This patch should solve the issue.  Without it, the init.d start to
early in the boot sequence, and some syslog messages might get lost.
