Winbindd dies when running "getent group" on a PDC based on Samba 3.2.4 with
"ldapsam:editposix" enabled (see attachments).
The crash of Winbindd happens when getent tries to enumerate the users members of a group
where there are computer accounts (like "domain users" group).
I think it's a problem of "sam_lookup_groupmem", in "winbindd_passdb.c", that do not sets properly the pointers in
"**name_types" and "***names" (the concept also applies to Samba 3.3.0pre2, I think)
I propose the attached patch ("winbindd_passdb.patch")

This looks perfectly correct - thanks for the patch ! Applying to 3.2.x and 3.3.x and master git branches !
Applied to all git branches.
