Hi Andrew,

thanks for the reply, unfortunately, this was a typo in the description, not 
in the actual configuration file, so I'm afraid I still have the same issue 
. . .

It is actually:

	passwd: files winbind
	shadow: files
	group:	 files winbind

Any other ideas? (I wish it was something this dumb, I've been working on 
this for a couple of weeks . . .)
