[Samba] Winbind behaviour odd in 3.4.9 and 3.5.6 vs 3.2.14 (Samba domain with Samba member servers)

I have registered a bug for this, #7763.

I am also now suffering from #7066, have followed all the suggestions 
and have no resolution.

Is it the case that Samba in as a domain controller with member server 
in NT4-style domains  should only be used with 3.2.x (which is not 
ostensibly unsupported)? I find this quite mysterious as surely others 
are still waiting for Samba 4 to stabilise so they can move to an AD 

If I am barking up the wrong tree, can anyone point me to any docs that 
will help me correct my configuration for Samba >=3.4? It seems there is 
nothing out there that answers my questions, or those that have 
helpfully replied to my query.

To start, can I ask if this simple config that worked in 3.2.x is now 
idmap backend = ldap:ldap://
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
winbind nested groups = yes
winbind trusted domains only = yes
winbind use default domain = no
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
allow trusted domains = yes
