As I said later in the mail, I *did* add gidNumber, and then after that 
objectClass: posixGroup, and neither made a difference.

root at dc1:~# ldapsearch -b "CN=users,DC=adtest,DC=int,DC=example,DC=net" 
"(gidNumber=1008)" cn objectclass gidNumber
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <CN=users,DC=adtest,DC=int,DC=example,DC=net> with scope subtree
# filter: (gidNumber=1008)
# requesting: cn objectclass gidNumber

# Domain Users, Users, adtest.int.example.net
dn: CN=Domain Users,CN=Users,DC=adtest,DC=int,DC=example,DC=net
cn: Domain Users
gidNumber: 1008
objectClass: top
objectClass: posixGroup
objectClass: group

# user8, Users, adtest.int.example.net
dn: CN=user8,CN=Users,DC=adtest,DC=int,DC=example,DC=net
cn: user8
gidNumber: 1008
objectClass: top
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: user

And yet on the client machine:

root at adclient:~# service winbind restart
winbind stop/waiting
winbind start/running, process 29104

root at adclient:~# getent passwd user8

What next?
