My error, the question was not pertinent to my setup in the first place.
 I assumed that the username from nsswitch would be the same as returned
by "wbinfo -u".  I just checked, and username are indeed lowercased when
running "getent passwd".  I am using samba-3.0.10-1.4E rpm on RHEL 4.

Thanks very much for your prompt answer M. Terpstra.
