[Samba] weird username mappings in samba 2.2.5

I'm running Samba/Winbind 2.2.5.  I have the box joined into my NT 
Domain and everything is peachy.  I copied a file from my Windows box to 
the Samba and then clicked on properties and checked the permissions. 
First off, it took a while to retrieve the permissions, secondly the 
last name on the list was something like S1-2343-23423232-81238912389, 
which I believe is a SID.  Now I logged onto the box with a domain 
account that the Samba server belongs to.  Why isn't the permission list 
for that file mapping to the username of the account I logged in as? 
Why is it using the SID?
