[Samba] winbindd almost working, perhaps ?

Nothing *will* get written to /etc/passwd or /etc/group.  The winbind
information is combined with the information in those files via the nsswitch
mechanism, the files are not altered.

What do you get from the following commands (with winbindd running)?

wbinfo -t
(Should say "Secret is good.")

wbinfo -u
(Should give a list of all domain users.)

getent passwd
(Should list all local and all domain users.)

OK, what doesn't work:

nothing's getting actually written to /etc/passwd or /etc/group.  Here's
output from winbindd -d 3 -i  as I browse the linux machine from a win2k
machine on the domain (I intentionally did this with a 'testuser' account
rather than my own, which is in the Domain Admins NT group and already has
an account on the Linux box with the same username/password - gee, should I
get rid of that and let winbindd add my domain user account instead ?
