That really should be the fix. You did restart winbind?

Assuming "userX" with password "hello1" used to work, but now "xx\userX" 
password "hello1" is required, then setting "winbind use default domain 
= yes" allows the former to work again.

Run "testparam -s -v |grep winbind" and see that they appears sensible 
to you...

Oh - we are all assuming you are referring to Unix login processes in 
all this, e.g. ssh, console, etc. And yes, we have 3.0.28 and I can 
"flip flop" between these two scenarios by making this change - I just 
checked :-)
