Hi, Barry,

I'm not skilled in this very well... but my 2 ct are: If it's of no
meaning to what you change winbind separator but only that you do this,
I would look in the winbind area. A simple question: there should be
winbindd daemon running for those purpuses - is he? Maybe your
"workaround" is a difficult way to start / restart winbindd on mondays?
