Trust relationships are one-way, so it is possible to have "D1 trusts
D2" without "D2 trusts D1".  Make sure you have "D2 trusts D1" as that
is what you need.

Beyond that, make sure the Unix username (that is, /etc/passwd) exists
for everyone in Domain2, just like you have to do with Domain1.

Then it should work.  It works for me.
