CentOS 5.3 getent does not return data from the active directory (ads)

  I have installed and configured kerberos and samba so that the
server can be a member of an existing Active Directory (AD).  Correct
configuration of kerbos was verified using kinit and klist.  The samba
configuration was verified by using "smbclient -k -L server".  winbind
was verified by using "wbinfo -g".  The problem seems to be nsswitch
accessing winbindd to get group information via the "getent group"
command.  I added winbind to the /etc/nsswitch.conf file like so:

[root at nagios ~]# grep winbind /etc/nsswitch.conf
passwd:     files winbind
shadow:     files winbind
group:      files winbind

   I verified that all dynamic libraries are being accessed correctly
by using "strace getent group".

  Below is the debug output of winbindd when issuing various commands
that interact with it.  The commands are noted in (parenthesis).
