Description Michael Letzgus-Koppmann 2012-07-04 20:14:15 UTC
As a follow-up on report 9020 (https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9020):

Winbind does not recover from a temporary failure (due to a lack of memory) of mlock(), it must be restartet.

This is a really hard problem to solve. Probably the easiest fix is to just exit on memory failure, and rely on the system daemon handling to restart us.
