[Samba] Winbind + KDE + GNOME

This may be too late, but I found another way to do this that dose not 
require adding entries to the /etc/passwd file.  If you use primarily 
one domain then add the "winbind use default domain = yes"  to the 
smb.conf file.  This will allow using just the username and not the 
DOMAIN+user to login.  With that option set gdm will allow the user to 
login jut fine.

Hope this helps.
