This does not explain the comment

       /* do what win2k does.  Always map unknown domains to our own
           and let the "passdb backend" handle unknown users. */

I would feel a lot better if I actually could reproduce the 'do what w2k does'

more detail the exact setup you used to find this behaviour with w2k?
