[Samba] Different parsing alg. on smb&winbind for separator

Speculation?? Any developers here want to comment? Is this a known bug?
It must be that the two programs (winbindd & smbd) use different
algorithms to parse the winbind separator since winbind definitely grabs
the first character whatever it might be while the "samba" program (I
assume it is smbd) can parse the quote character (") as a quote and grab
the character contained within, e.g. the restart after changing
separator to "+". (I'm not as concerned as to what causes winbind to
reread the smb.conf file after running for awhile. If the parsing worked
okay then that wouldn't be a problem.)
I'm running my server in "domain" mode.
