[samba/winbind/nss] Does not resolve host names

Hello List,

I'm quite desperate with my Samba installation. Samba can resolve
Windows hostnames without any flaw, but I can't get /etc/nsswitch.conf
to cooperate with Samba...

My installation:
* samba & winbind unmodified from Woody, nmbd & winbindd running.
* nmblookup and wbinfo -h _can_ resolve hostnames
* ping, telnet, ftp, pan can't.

# nmblookup urxgoing
querying urxgoing on urxgoing<00>
# wbinfo -h urxgoing	urxgoing
# grep hosts /etc/nsswitch.conf 
hosts: winbind files dns
# ping urxgoing
ping: unknown host urxgoing
# ll /lib/libnss_w* /tmp/.winbindd/pipe
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  11k 13. Okt 04:13 /lib/libnss_winbind.so.2
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 524k 13. Okt 04:13 /lib/libnss_wins.so
srwxrwxrwx  1 root root    0  4. Nov 23:07 /tmp/.winbindd/pipe=

I conclude that I messed up something with NSS... but what?
