Description David Woodhouse 2015-09-01 11:42:56 EDT
When the clock is wrong, users authenticating with winbind cannot log in.

Winbind emits log messages *noting* that the clock is wrong and that the clock is being adjusted to cope... and then fails to accept the Kerberos TGT which it successfully obtains from the server, complaining that it is not yet valid.

This is a severe usability problem.
