Actually, looking back now, he did reference the winbindd man page in
his first post, and looked through logs.  Maybe just ran out of steam
at that stage of the process?

I had similar success when I tried it... the only "problems" I
experienced were logs getting winbind errors for system accounts.  But
Jerry and Andrew both say don't use it in 2.x, and have said it more
than once on this list.

Well, if he has winbind problems in 2.x with use default domain, I
suspect the samba team would say it got placed in 2.x to satisfy a
dependency of a code merge, has known flaws, and should not be used.
If he has problems in 3.x with winbind use default domain = yes, he's
likely to get more eyes.  That's my best guess, at least, and I
welcomed him to try it in 2.x, but suggested 3.x was the way to go if
he really needed it.
