Coming back on this bug report again.

I had more discussion with samba upstream and they pointed me to
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7684 which is a duplicate
of #7265.

From #7684, the bug is fixed in samba 3.5.6, which reached testing as
of Oct 21st  2010.

And, indeed, the patch I applied is useless and redundant.

So, Donald, your original report doesn't mention which version of
winbind was running on your system when you reported #606350 but I
somehow suspect it might have been a version lower than 3.5.6. Still,
your system is reported to be using testing so it should have been

Are you in position to test again with the genuine 3.5.6 version from
testing and not the packages I pointed you to? Alternatively, if you
confirm that, at the moment you reported this bug, the version fo
samba was lower than 3.5.6, then I will close it as fixed in 3.5.6
