Correct, please don't!

I have had a lengthy discussion with G√ľnther and Andreas
about the whole situation. It is currently *not* as if
'security = domain' behaves the same as 'security = ads'
against an AD domain (if 'winbind rpc only = no'),
because it is not only the winbind methods that matter.
There are quite a number of code places where the
actual lp_security() is checked against SEC_ADS.

So this requires some more thought and possibly some
more cleanup before we can call sec=ads and sec=domain
synonyms. Will follow up with more patches soon(is)... :-)

Cheers - Michael
