This is #612049.

And, as said in upstream bug: "Winbind authenticating the local domain
has never been supported".

Upstream mentioned this becomes supported with a very different logic
in 3.6. So, I see the patch proposed in comment #4 as not supported by
upstream and therefore I'm against including it in Debian.
