BTW, for this comment I mean when a Windows PC connects to a samba
domain member server the ACLs tab displays SIDs instead of usernames.
On the PDC/BDC winbind is not needed for the display of user names in
the ACLs tab. In either case winbind has nothing to do with the
functionality of the acls. They still would work without winbind but
you just cant tell who has access writes that is unless you memorized
the SIDs...
