[Samba] Winbind login: has "DOMAIN+user", wants "user"

I'm using RH9 with latest Samba 3.0.x-x

I configured winbind as per
I use the default smb.conf with following (from URL above) added to its
global section:

winbind separator = +
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
use nss_winbind = yes
template homedir = /home/winnt/%D/%U
template shell = /bin/bash

I cannot login using Active Directory's "username"; instead I must use
login "DOMAIN+username" at login prompt as recommended at
http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2002-June/045313.html, otherwise I
get the same error as mentioned at this URL.

Why is that? I want to auth SMTP users via winbind so I want to be able
to use "user" instead of "DOMAIN+user".
