I ran through the steps to get Winbind authentication working on a fresh Fedora 16 install, and I can login via SSH with my Winbind account, but I cannot log into Gnome using the network login. It just sits there when I put in the password. It doesn't come back incorrect or anything. It just sits there until I give up and hit cancel after like 5 mins.

Figured it out. It was a missing PAM setting in the /etc/pam.d/password-auth file.
