Just a side note, now that this works.
I fully agree that using fully numeric usernames is a bad thing,
believe me, I didn't do it, it's been this way here for many years.
But the windows stuff is handled by a different department, and we
(on the unix side) have no say, we just have to work with the fallout.

Yep, as demonstrated, the format of the username map needs to be:
<unix user> = <DOMAIN\Windows User>
and a small note for others: Watch the "\" it NEEDS to be a back slash.
don't ask how I know. ;)
