Should have put in a real entry instead of assuming people would read a
man page ...

I think it's a bit suspect to suggest 3.0alpha over 2.2.x, depending on
the application. For plain authentication use (ie desktops, ssh, cvs
over ssh, pop/imap etc), it seems to work very well. I have a production
server at a client, that I have never had problems with, service 600+
mailboxes to 60+ concurrent users.

I am quite sure 3.0alpha isn't supported yet either (which is the gist
of the messages regarding winbind use default domain = yes).
