Change in Winbindd Behavior
- ---------------------------

All usernames returned by winbindd are now converted to lower
case for better consistency.  This means any winbind installation
relying on the winbind username will need to rename existing
directories and/or files based on the username (%u and %U) to lower
case (e.g. mv $name `echo $name | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'`).  This may
include mail spool files, home directories, valid user lines in
smb.conf, etc....
