I have debian sarge on my machines and so samba 3.0.14 is the standard 
install. I built 3.0.20 and installed it, and it seems to work okay. 
Both Samba and Winbind start up fine with the same smb.conf file with 
winbind separator = +. It has now been working okay on a test server for 
a day or so. Well enough that I started it up on the production server 
and so far all is okay. So apparently that parsing issue was fixed.
