BTW, it happens even if I restart winbind (i.e. changes to group membership
reflect only after a few hours). I understand that everyone is busy (I wrote
a few messages with real problems during a few weeks and got only one
response, and I can understand that), but does it work for everyone else?
I.e., if you remove user from group, is the user still able to access files
accessible by group only?
