I am using samba 3.0.2a.  on Suse Linux 9.0 for AMD64.  If I issue
'getent passwd' I get a list of the domain user accounts.  If I select
one of the usernames from the output and issue

'getent passwd  DOMAIN-user'  I get no response. I have put the debug level
of winbind to 10 and queries without a username result in a lot of activity
on winbindd's part.  Hower doing the same for a single user results in no
output from winbind, it seems the query is not forwarded to the daemon if
the details for a particular user are requested.
