I'm using '+' as a delimiter, but in any case:

# wbinfo -a 'DOMAIN+graemehu%password'
plaintext password authentication succeeded
challenge/response password authentication succeeded
root at oberon:~ # su - 'DOMAIN+graemehu'
graemehu at oberon:~$ id
uid=10670(graemehu) gid=10047(maingroup)

Yay! And, connecting to the share controlled by that group, I can now
get into it! HOORAY!

So, my next question is, how do I force this to happen on a global level
for all users, say, every 5 minutes. ;)
