When/if I finally get it working, I'll try and document what I've done!

At the moment I'm stuck with Apache - I have the mod_auth_pam 
module installed and have a local .htaccess file which has 
AuthPAM enabled and require is to need a valid-user. 

When I attempt to login with a domain user name, the auth.log
reports that winbind has returned success 
	pam_winbind[xxx]: user 'DOMAIN+user' granted access 
but then Apache just hangs there and does nothing. 

Is this because that domain name is not a valid user for the 
local setup? I didn't think that I needed it because pam.d/httpd
points to winbind so that would be enough to authenticate the

(Oh, incidentally, I'm not sure what the issue with the 
login problem that I posted about yesterday. I took the part
brave, part stupid decision to reboot the machine and it
was, fortunately, ok from there. I guess it was just a 
combination of installing new things and whatever that 
just got it confused and starting fresh did the trick.)
