I get response from getent passwd in the form of

The entry in smb.conf is winbind separator = '\'

Why are there the apostrophes around \ in the entry? Shouldn't there be
bare \ in that entry?

I tried putting \ instead of '\' into smb.conf but the config file even
doesn't get parsed - it reports syntax error on the next line.
