I'm afraid the bug reappears with these packages:

samba-common                        2:3.5.6~dfsg-3
samba-common-bin                    2:3.5.6~dfsg-3~test1
libwbclient0                        2:3.5.6~dfsg-3
winbind                             2:3.5.6~dfsg-3

I am seeing a growth in fd links.  Also the pipes left open
are visible from running: netstat -e | grep winbind
It reports dozens of lines like:

unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTED     72840600
unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTED     72819898
unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTED     72811786
unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTED     72799966
unix  3      [ ]         STREAM     CONNECTED     72765262

When I used all packages ending with ~test1 , I never catch any
dangling pipes like this from netstat report.

I'm up to 71 open fd links to sockets from 5 saslauthd processes
since this morning (relatively slow as students and faculty are not back
