Yes, exactly!

Oh well... I guess I'll have to go the "all" -way then and set up the 
manually for those, who need a shell access plus create all samba users
manually as well. Actually, this is not so bad an idea after it has 
been done, since
password management still goes to winbindd and the kerberos servers. I 
I would have saved a lot of work by only listing shell users to the 
local /etc/passwd
and leaving all the rest to winbindd.
