Sorry, Geoff, I thought I'd reply to the list as this seems an important

Ok, I lied.  I had seen it somewhere...
it is in the Samba-HOWTO-Collection/groupmapping.html#id2537327 paragraph 
(the note...)

The other really useful thing I found while looking for the above 
reference is in the Samba-Guide/happy.html#id2536161 where in the note it 
says that having separate containers for users and computers does not yet 
work, yet examples appear to use this (hence I got the crazy idea it 
should just work and it didn't).

This brings me to my last point about the LDAP issue that seemed to bring 
this thread up:
Why is samba using NSS when it has all the necessary information to do the 
proper LDAP search itself?  This does not appear to make sense.
