Package: winbind - Samba nameservice integration server
Version: 2:3.5.6~dfsg-3

Kernel: 2.6.32-5-amd64
Distribution: testing "squeeze"
Date: 20110120 (jan 20 2011)

The installation of the winbind pre-compiled .deb package do not
update the System-V init script links to /etc/initd/winbind.
As result, the winbindd daemon do not start at the system startup and
the host can't work properly in SBM enviroment.

Temporal solution is perform the following command as root:

# update-rc.d winbind defaults
