You login with the samaccountname, which may be 'boubou', I am unsure
because I do not know how 'boubou' was created in AD. You will first
need to delete the 'boubou' user in /etc/passwd and if the
samaccountname is 'boubou', then, after you run 'net cache flush',
'getent passwd boubou' should produce a different result. You will then
need to 'chown boubou:Domain\ Users' on any files or directories owned
by 'boubou'

As an aside, I take it the gidNumber for Domain users is 10004 and the
windows RID for vakjak is 1049
