[Samba] Joining Windows Server 2012 to a Samba 3.5 or 3.6 domain

I upgraded the PDC to samba 3.6.20 from 3.5.10.   I am now able to join 
Win 2012R2 to my samba domain.

However, it did break something with my trusted domain.  I have a domain 
trust with a Win 2003 AD domain.    IDmapping is in ldap. (in fact I 
manually create the entries to make sure they correct UID range is 
used.)    "wbinfo -u" lists users from both the trusted and local 
domains.    "wbinfo -n" and "wbinfo -S" verify that a unix uid has been 
assigned to the user.   But "getent passwd TRUSTEDDOMAIN\someuser"  
returns nothing.    I suspect something is cached and the cached entry 
has been flagged as expired.
