You should choose it, but I got some problems changing it from the default
value in some applications. For example, while using squid with NTLM
proxy authentication. The windows workstations were sending the username
in the DOMAIN\user form, and, unless winbind was configured to use "\"
as well, the authentication wouldn't work.
