[Samba] nested group support still broken in 3.2.2?

Hi there

I've just upgraded to 3.2.2 and it still looks like nested group support
isn't finished?

e.g. if I have "domain1/user1" in group "domain2/group1" and that in
turn is in "domain3/group2" (i.e. domain1/user1 is in domain3/group2),
then "getent group domain3/group2" should return domain1/user1 - and yet
it doesn't. "winbind enum groups" is enabled if that matters (it didn't
seem to make a difference)

However, "id domain1/user1" does show that domain3/group2 is listed as
one of that users groups - so it's working well in that direction...?

Am I right, or have we got a problem that could actually be fixed? :-)
This is under FC8.
