I'm specifically looking at the winbindd improvements. Mine keeps dying.
I have a work around but most questions to the samba list get answered
with: upgrade to 3.0.20... I am considering upgrading (reinstalling) to
centos 4 but that only gets me to 3.0.10. I can wait a bit but upgrading
some packages is always is always daunting.

3.0.20 has a bunch of fixes for interacting with AD environments which
is what is driving his interest. I would expect that RHEL will adopt it
probably soon after 3.0.20b happens.
