[Samba] 3.0.3pre2 Unable to lookup user names for display

The following configuration has been working OK with Samba 3.0.1

Mandrake 9.0 PDC.
Redhat 7.3 BDC.
(both with ldapsam passdb backend).
Solaris 8 Memberserver.

After upgrade to 3.0.3pre2, exactly the same configuration - with exactly
the same smb.conf - produces an error, when you try to add a user or group
in the security settings of a file or directory through MS Explorer. The
message text is 'Unable to lookup user names for display.'

When you list users with wbinfo -u, only the usernames, not the domain part,
is listed. In log.winbindd you get:

[2004/04/14 13:24:46, 0] nsswitch/winbindd_sid.c:winbindd_lookupname(111)
could not find domain entry for domain <server netbiosname>.

I have reported this a bug -- any comments ?
