True, there have been lots of changes in 3.0.23, but I would
still very strongly argue that they are necessary.

If you have issues with it, please report them here or in

We need more information here. A debug level 10 log of smbd
would be helpful.

I would be surprised that this is a 3.0.23 specific thing,

This can indeed happen if winbind does not map the unix id
of Joe to a domain sid. In particular with your "winbind
trusted domains only = yes" setting it is very likely to
happen. See the release notes, this is one of the changes we
