Winbind issues in Ubuntu 14.04

So no one else wastes a couple of hours of their lives wondering why ntlm_auth is failing due to what appear to be permissions issue.
In the version of samba4 installed with Ubuntu 14.04 (4.1.6) the default location of the winbinddd_privileged directory appears to be /var/lib/samba.
The upstart script however, still has it in /var/run/samba/ (it may have changed), and does a lovely job of masking the problem by creating the winbindd_privileged directory there on start:
test -x /usr/sbin/winbindd || exit 0
mkdir -p /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged
chgrp winbindd_priv /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged
chmod 0750 /var/run/samba/winbindd_privileged
Special shout outs go to the samba project for writing a utility with the most useless debugging output ever:
Program returned code (1) and output 'Reading winbind reply failed! (0xc0000001)'
(57) mschap : External script failed
(57) ERROR: mschap : External script says: Reading winbind reply failed! (0xc0000001)
(57) ERROR: mschap : MS-CHAP2-Response is incorrect
and whoever decided to disable the init.d script on upstart enabled systems by adding:
case "$1" in
if init_is_upstart; then
Bug reported here for winbindd_privileged:
