To answer your specific question, you must take into account the fact that
there can be a user 'tibberi' in more than one domain. The only way Samba
can provide unambiguous resolution of the user is by showning the domain
context that the user is in. Any other solution can result in flawed

Secondly, could it be that your group ID is not translating to the group
name because your system is running nscd (the name service caching
daemon)? If it is, you really ought to disable it as it will interfere
with winbind operations.
