[Samba] Confused by winbind trusted domains only

I'm setting up a Samba 3 server that will use AD security and serve home 
directories and other shares.  I have two types of users, with and 
without local unix accounts.  I'm using winbind.

If I enable "winbind trusted domains only" my local unix user can log 
into the server and is presented with his unix home directory; however, 
a windows user who has no local account cannot log in at all.

If, however, I take out that parameter the Windows user can then log in 
but my local unix user does not get his home directory.  Evidently a 
matchup between the unix user's UID (hcaley) and the username returned 
by AD (HCaley) is not taking place.

Is there a way I can get both to work properly?
