[Samba] Samba/winbind UID mismatch.

That did not work. But on the bright side, it looks like it is doing that only for one user and only via smb. 

Other services which use the same winbind authentication seem to work fine for that user such ftp and afp. I am going to recreate the user and see if it resolves the issue.

Thanks for your help.
