You were absolutely right.
For future reference:

Ubuntu (12.04) places the socket in /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged
The socket itself is owned root:root permissions  s777
The directory is owned root:winbindd_privileged permissions 750
Adding the user freerad to the group winbindd_privileged did the trick.

Thanks.... Peter
