Many thanks (somewhat belated) to all those who made suggestions about
this matter. However, I'm still no further forward, having tried:
Using a usermap file to translate between upper and lower case account
(Finally) managing to compile 3.0.28 and using idmap_nss.
Not using Winbind.
In all cases, user accounts appear in file properties on Windows
machines as:
u123456 (Unix User\u123456)
I'm sure I must be missing something somewhere.
