I see that in this patch file only winbindd_cm.c is patched, so I downloaded
latest (rev. 6158) from the SAMBA_3_0 branch (you fixed some misleading 
error messages after this patch) and compiled in to my 3.0.13 build
on Fedora Core 2.

I tested this patched version against a W2k3 server with SP1 in my test
(it is the only W2k3 DC in my test environment at the moment).
It seems that, with this patch, winbind is "alive and kicking" resolving AD
groups again.
getent group "NH-HOTELES\dep_dussel_member" works now as it didn't work
the patch.
With 'chown' I could also give an AD group access to a Linux directory.

I'll continue testing Samba against a W2k3 sp1 server in the coming weeks.
If I find other issues, I'll let you know.
