I believe, this (nss_winbind change) will still resolve local access issue
but the problem will be still there with NFS access. Although it can be
solved by doubling the ACL size by having UID and GID entries, this will
restrict max ACL size by half.
Thanks and Regards

Yes, it looks odd, but this is how we have decided to handle IDMAP_BOTH.
Given the users are going to come via winbind (in order to have got an
IDMAP_BOTH in the first place), it seems reasonable just to fix
The alternative is to double to size of the ACL by having both UID and
GID entries for every IDMAP_BOTH result.
