Yeah.  But I think I still have a few more kinks

You're running winbindd without idmap ranges?  I'm

in a Samba domain with 'winbind trusted domains only
= yes'.  This previously worked.

It's a pretty big bug actually if you copy files from
the Samba box to a local NTFS partition on a Windows
client.  We'll have to fix this, but I need to think
about it some.
