Package: winbind
Version: 2:3.5.6~dfsg-3squeeze2
Severity: important

This is a bug introduced upstream in 3.5.x(3.4 worked). The setup is that if
I have a samba PDC which also run squid as a proxy machine for windows
workstation, it requires winbind to have NTLM authentication support.

But winbind in 3.5.x fails to authenticate local PDC as reported in


There is a patch suggested down in Comment#4 which reverts back to 3.4.x

While this is not a show stopper, it does break my existing setup which
was dated back to Lenny.
