[Samba] Two questions on winbind and nsswitch.conf

Greetings folks,

I am using winbind in /etc/nsswitch.conf for the passwd database
("passwd file winbind").  I have two little problems :

1. winbind return what look like machine trust account, ie
WORKSTATION1$, when running "wbinfo -u".  These account also show when I
do "getent passwd".  Is it possible to make winbind not return these ?

2. The domain to which I connect have username in both upper- and
lowercase, ie user1 and USER2.  Is there a way to make winbind lowercase
all username ?

I am running Samba 3.0.10 on RHEL 4.

Thanks very much for any tips !
