I am not looking to authenticate shell access against a windows server.  I'm 
only trying to authenticate access to smbd against a windows server.  I'm 
using "security = server" with the password server set to the domain 
controllers of my local domain.  There is a trust between the two domains.  
But smbd only seems to authenticate users who are in the local domain.
