Had not taken NIS into account. Good point.

Actually 100 :)

I did on a test machine, already during the testing of
W2k and XP office apps use of ACLs. Caching did fine.
(ACLs did not.) I don't expect the cache behaviour to
be much different on the production box. Both don't have
NIS, do not act as DCs, and share user management is
almost pure winbind driven. (I'm a little winbind biased :)

I was wrong and you convinced me!
