Sadly Samba4 simply does not support trusted domains.  We would like to
work on it soon, we have nominated it as an area to focus on at our
annual interop plugfest with Microsoft in late September, but sadly
there is nothing more than some skeleton support for a few of the RPCs
at the moment.  That's why it appears to half-work.
