I had been told from the previous admin that ncsd should be turned off when using winbind, but I have seen no difference in behavior when the service is on or off. 

It certainly does look like a problem of the winbind nsswitch module, 
possibly in conjunction with nsćd, if a user name lookup fails 
intermittently. Does winbind need credentials to authenticate to AD for 
name service lookups?

The Sun Ray 'Session Lock' GUI runs outside the session context. This is 
different from both an ordinary screensaver and the initial login. (But 
nscd would run outside the session context anyhow.)
