So you mean if I run winbindd I can't use group mapping?  Are there any
ways around this?  (Like getting winbindd to check the group map before
checking the idmap ranges?)

Oh that's interesting.  I tried that but of course as I don't have
all the domain groups mapped it didn't work (I was hoping it might
work a little, as there aren't enough UIDs on my system to map all the
users and that seems to work okay.)
