Looks ok to me.  2 comments

  * I don't get the use of the unix_name addition.  What 
    purpose is it suppose to serve?

  * I still think we need to have some way for an auth method
    to say "I am authoritative for this user.  No need to move
    on."  A BOOL final flag to the auth funcitons would be enough.
    But for now, saying not implemented in auth_winbind for domains
    matching get_global_sam_name() works.  If it comes back up 
    again we can revisit this issue.

But neither of these are reasons for not going ahead and checking 
it in.

cheers, jerry
