[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#566990: winbind has incorrect dependencies

Package: winbind
Version: 2:3.2.5-4lenny7
Severity: normal

(Obviously) wbinfo 3.2.5 does not work with libwbclient0 3.4.3.

# wbinfo -p
Ping to winbindd failed
could not ping winbindd!

This occured to me when downgrading from samba 3.4 (with broken print support)
to samba 3.2 and took me several hours to find. :(

I think the dependency of winbind should be fixed to reflect this.
The error message of wbinfo is not helpful either.
