Thanks.  I thought I had the MYDOMAIN working by itself, but I think
my mistake was that I'd failed to clear winbind's caches and was
seeing old info.  (I don't know if there's a recommended way of
testing winbind configs besides deleting winbind*.tdb and
gencache*.tdb between tests.)

We've been using rid for consistent mapping for several years now.
Prior to upgrading to Samba 4.x, it never caused problems.
