Actually, I have a PDC which use nss_ldap & pam_ldap for posix account
and idealx-tools for manage user/machine and groups account coupled
with webmin.  I never used winbind for that and the nested group
functionnality is not used !

Now, I think that there are two parts that this new functionnality
(ldapsam:editposix) ask :
- - admin using internal tools of samba (net, pdbedit, ...)
- - admin using external tools (smbldap-tools, ldapscript, ...)

Be carrefull if admin use internal and external tools, is the problem
that you point ?
