Yes, I've noticed and I'm glad to see it. I've made a quick glance through
the code and it looks fine.

Listing users needs just a few fixes which I'm working on (just want to
finish one detail in monitor messages before). Groups are next in turn.

I was also thinking about implementing idmap functions in libnet. This
could allow winbind to use it automatically and still provide some degree
of manual control over mapping, which is sometimes very desirable.
