There is still problem with group handling in 3.0.23d.
Namely, if 
"winbind enum groups" =no:
id  command does not show all the groups of the user and the user is not
able to access the directories owned by his secondary groups.
Furthermore, wbinfo -r shows some spurious GIDs which do not resolve to

"winbind enum groups" =yes:
id does show all the groups of the user and the user is able to access
group-owned directories.
However, there are still spurious GIDs in the output of wbinfo -r

In summary: it is now possible to workaround the group membership
problem by "winbind enum groups" =yes. But is this correct that turning it
off breaks permission handling?

With best regards,
