I finally made the patch and uploaded it. You can access it at the
The patch is against the samba 3.0.11pre1 release. It should work
against 3.0.9 and 3.0.10 as well but I haven't tried it.
cd-ing into the source directory and using patch -p1 should do the trick.
Please read the REAME.winbind-patch file in the nsswitch directory
before you start using this patch.
If you find any bugs or you think of any improvements then please let me
