No, it is not. The only operation regarding group membership
that is doable reliably is getting the list of groups a user
is member of directly while this user is logging in.

Anything beyond that like asking the same question without
having logged in, getting a list of members of a group,
getting lists of users and groups and so on will sooner or
later fail if you are not administrator of all domains in
question. Winbind is not made for being admin in all
domains, and this is nothing that you _want_ winbind on a
member server to be.

Please look at the explanations in bug #3530. Don't wait for
this to be fixed.
