See my other mail I sent today to this list. I've also had the same

In short, use quotes. I'm using winbind to get the windows domain because
the samba docs states that you can only use UNIX groups in the (in)valid
user parameter. So I'm using this @"DOM+Domain Name".

This should be added to the docs and I asked in my other mail how to do
