This looks exactly like what I am seeing with a samba-3.0.0rc1 member in
a samba-2.2.8a domain, and seems to be this bug:


With samba-2.2.x (instead of 3.0.0rc1) on the (same) member server, the
SID is resolved correctly, and Win2ksp3 shows the username/gecos correctly.

Jerry asked for level 10 logs for this, I will be sending him some
shortly ...
