Samba and Winbind problem

Desktop is Feisty 7.04

I have Samba and winbind installed. I installed winbind so I don't have to remember IP's and can refer to machines on the network by their names.

The problem is when winbind is running ... the shares on the machine on which winbind is installed are not accessible. I get a "cannot display the contents of this folder" error message.

If I stop the winbind service, then everything is ok, but as soon as it is started back then the shares become inaccessible.

Has anyone experienced this?

It seems that there is a conflict between avahi-daemon and winbind. When both are running then samba shares are inaccesible. How can they be made to work together.
