IMO this unnecessarily complicates the code.  "offline" in
winbindd means that cached logons and "ls -l" should work
without a network connection and eb served out of its cache.
A backend can do whatever it likes but winbindd should never
ask a backend to connect to the network when it itself
has been set to not communicate with the network.  Let's
solve the single problem at hand without introducing added
complexity if we can help it.

That's the way I'll fix the off line design in winbindd.






cheers, jerry
