I have read many opinions on what character to use for the winbind
separator. Many people urge changing the default to '+'. According to
'winbind separator = +' might cause problems with group membership.
The man page for smb.conf says this on the subject:
"Please note that setting [winbind separator] to + causes problems with
group membership at least on glibc systems, as the character + is used as a
special character for NIS in /etc/group."
What *exactly* are the implications of using '+' as the winbind separator
(in the absence of NIS)?
