yes exactly
we are running winbind in security=ads
and our config contains
      idmap uid = 10000-10000
        idmap gid = 10000-10000
        winbind use default domain = Yes
        winbind trusted domains only = Yes

you are right.
We are forcing our users to store all their data on central storage, 
therefore I did not see that probblem.
I reserved a small not critical samba server for testing purposes.
If want me to trie a patch if you find a solution for this problem
let me know.

I feel a bit angry about myself  because I have not tested your 3.0.23 
RC candidates.
It is not possible for me to test for example the file serving 
capabilities of a samba RC in
our production HA Filserver, but I would have been able to discover the 
problems in this thread
earlier if I did the tests on a testsystem (like I did now before the 
roleout of 3.0.23b9
, just for myself without impacts for the users.

We all  benefit a lot from your work
( e.g. as a research insitute using your opensource  CIFS file and 
printserver in this case or as a company providing your software to 
customers ) .
I am unable to provide assistance in development, therefore I promise to 
do more testing
of RC's of versions I am running in the future. :-)

Thank you very much
