Versions in use here are :
- Windows server 2003 SP1
- Samba / winbind 3.0.14a (from debian sarge).
I just tested it with 3.0.22 (from ubuntu dapper), and distribution
groups *don't* show up.
Sorry for opening the topic before testing this on a recent release.
This topic is closed AFAI am concerned, and hopefully contains keywords
for future generations ;)
