First assigning the wrong groups to a user is a security
issue. Second, I said pull 'winbind use default domain'
from the server code and put it in the client code.
The fact is that this parameter is fundamentally broken.
It cannot actually work correctly. At some point (probably
for 3.0.24) we will have to break it and move it to the
client. There is no way around it.
