[Samba] Samba 4.2rc2 and winbindd

OK, so I have compiled 4.2rc2 in a VM to test it. Now I thought that by 
using the new winbindd a lot of the old problems would be gone. I have 
created a new user, given him a uidNumber and the loginShell & 
unixHomeDirectory attributes, I have also given Domain Users a gidNumber.

if I run 'getent passwd rowland' , I get this:

rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/%D/%U:/bin/false

It is basically just the same as before, the loginShell & 
unixHomeDirectory attributes are still not being pulled from AD.

The same command run on a 4.1.6 client against my domain DC's, does pull 
all the rfc2307 attributes.

Anybody any ideas where I go from here?
