Some additional information here...

I'm running 3.0.2a, this machine also runs nis so the nsswitch.conf is
passwd: files, nis, winbind.  getent passwd shows the uid in numerical
order.  I have no names in the smbpasswd file.  I have tried "use
default domain" which did not have any noticable affect.

I am logged into my nt workstation as the user "Lex".  My unix login
is "aludeman".  I try and mount "\\samba\aludeman".  Now here is the
part that I wasn't expecting; I've temporarily added aludeman to the
nt domain and my usermap says "aludeman = Lex".  I get the following

[2004/02/27 09:24:43, 2] auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(305)
check_ntlm_password:  authentication for user
  [Lex] -> [aludeman] -> [DOMAIN+aludeman] succeeded

in the source code is:
  user_info->smb_name.str, user_info->internal_username.str, unix_username

So the behavior that I'm seeing is that it's always taking the NT
domain precedence over the local passwd.  When DOMAIN+aludeman does
not exist then things behave like I would like them where HOMEGAIN+Lex
maps to unix user aludeman uid.

Any assistance is appreciated.
