I think I might have spotted something here, your user doesn't seem to
exist on the client and you are relying on wbinfo to tell you it exists.
Only problem with that, wbinfo checks AD but this doesn't mean the
local Unix OS knows the user. 

What does 'getent passwd username' show when run on 'debian2'?

Until it produces something like this:

rowland at devstation:~$ getent passwd rowland
rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/rowland:/bin/bash

it will not work.
