This is what has me confused about this issue - if we can't tell that
this is a winbind group, and if nsswitch is actually working correctly,
how is a winbind group any different from a local unix group?
I understand this means we cannot apply any 'is winbind group'
optimisations, but other than that, what is is about these groups that
causes things to break?
