[Samba] nsswitch.conf and Samba's windbind

I'm trying to setup my machine (FreeBSD-6.1) to be able to authenticate some 
users against the corporate Active Directory (using Samba's windbind).

Having the following line in the /etc/nsswitch.conf works to that end:

	passwd: files nis winbind

Unfortunately, this prevents the local +/- substitutions from working...


	passwd_compat: nis winbind

restores the +/- functionality, but disables the Active Directory 
functionality :-(

How do I get both? Thanks!
