The issues people are having with POSIX auth are
historical and to do with the AD environment having
its own winbind code.
This harks from a time when there was a danger the
project would split into two, a fileserver project
and an AD-DC project.
We are slowly but surely healing this wound, but
sometimes the stitches are still visible - the
S4 winbindd code is part of that.
Eventually we will get to a single unified winbindd
which works in both the AD-DC and member server case,
but you're going to have to bear with us until that
gets finished I'm afraid.
Reporting bugs and helping us fix them is a great
help there, thanks.
