I think so (maybe :-). I'd appreciate you checking it as well
(even though I'm 100% certain on this one, I could still be
wrong :-).

It still needs some tidyup. The call to normalize_name_unmap()
makes *no* sense as it's called with what is passed in from
the client, which could be DOMAIN\user. This call should only
ever act on the last component, not the domain portion (I think,
the semantics of normalize_name_unmap() seem idiotic and
insane to me :-). I can't imagine anyone actually has :

winbind normalize names = yes

set in their smb.conf.
