IMHO, the point is that the idmap-plugin just cares about uid/gid and not about
loginshells or homedirectories (which winbindd does). And winbindd does just
not know what idmap-plugin is running.
What I could think of is skipping idmap completly (and doing the
uid/gid-retrieval ourself in ads/sfu-mode) when users decide to plug into an
existing ads/sfu-infrastructure, but I see no way of how we could idmap let
decide how to handle shells and homedirs, no?
