Guess i am missing something here.

on my system the pipe has the following permissions:

proxy:/var/locks/winbindd_privileged # ls -alp
total 0
drwxr-x--- 2 root root 72 Feb 24 10:52 ./
drwxrwxrwx 4 root root 352 Feb 24 10:52 ../
srwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Feb 24 10:52 pipe=

If i try to change the permissions of the directory itself, so that
the squid user can access it, winbindd fails to start:

proxy:/var/locks # winbindd -i
winbindd version 3.0.2 started.

invalid permissions on socket directory /var/locks/winbindd_privileged
open_winbind_socket: No such file or directory

Doesnt matter if i try to change owner/group, or just the rwx
permissions for owner/group/all...

Where is my mistake?
