I installed these packages from sid this morning, onto
an otherwise squeeze based system:

samba-common                        2:3.5.6~dfsg-4
samba-common-bin                    2:3.5.6~dfsg-4
libwbclient0                        2:3.5.6~dfsg-4
winbind                             2:3.5.6~dfsg-4

I can see the pam library file is updated:

ls -l /lib/security/pam_winbind.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 60168 Jan 15 16:04 /lib/security/pam_winbind.so

winbind and saslauthd are restarted.

Six hours later I check and the number of fd files
and links is static at 8 files under each /proc/<pid>/fd
where <pid> is a process id from saslauthd

Based on prior experiences with the bug (leak growth appears
within a few  minutes), this bug is fixed in these package releases.
