Hmmm, I have the latest cvs bits and there is no mention of "domain users"
in smb.conf.5 and the cifsntomain.txt was last touched in Jan 1998 and does
not cover and of the real NT domain participation topics ?

Am I missing something ?

I've been playing with the cvs bits for a couple of weeks now and have LOTS
of questions as to how NT domain credentials interact with UNIX permissions,
groups, username matches/mismatches, etc ... and can find NO docs yet.  I just
thought that was due to the "alpha" tag :-)
