I am running samba 3.0.7 on a FC 2 box with the following setup 
(testparm output):

         workgroup = XXXXX
         realm = XXXXX.YYYYY.COM
         security = ADS
         log level = 1
         log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
         max log size = 50
         load printers = No
         os level = 0
         preferred master = No
         local master = No
         domain master = No
         idmap uid = 10000-20000
         idmap gid = 10000-20000
         winbind separator = _

This seems to work fine (at least all users can access shares and 
printers, though sometimes rather slow), but /var/log/samba/winbindd.log 
is filled with LOTS of messages like:

   user 'local_user' does not exist

Such a message seems to be generated for any local user (i.e. not listed 
in AD) which logs in, or for each process started using "su" etc. Might 
this come from pam? Any way to suppress it (as it clutters the logs)?

Tia, cheers,
