I *THINK* that did it!  I'll have to just use it some more and see.  I'm
not very clear on exactly what these parameters do.  The man page seems
kinda vague in how winbind interacts with the functions listed and how
enumerating users and groups (or NOT enumerating them) affects the system,
in particular winbind/samba.

Can you or anyone else here help me understand this better?

Thank you so much.
