[Samba] WINBIND with usernames with &
tdickson at inostor.com

Samba doesn't allow connections from usernames that have & in them. For
example, using 2.2.5 and winbind with
security = DOMAIN
password server = win2kmixed
workgroup = MIXEDDOMAIN
all my users can login, (for example MIXEDDOMAIN+aho, MIXEDDOMAIN+tdickson),
but my users named "&" and "bobalso&" (which should be MIXEDDOMAIN+& and
MIXEDDOMAIN+bobalso&) don't work. The log.win2kclient file indicates that
samba has changed & to _. (I.E, unable to connect for user _ or user
bobalso_, which won't work because it can't validate those users with the
domain controller (windows 2000), because they don't exist.
Is there anyway to work around this?
If this sounds too convoluted, let me know. I can add smb.conf files and log
files, but I think the problem is samba changing & to _ before processing
the login request.
