> What uses the SYSTEM principal on the Sysvol share? 
Every computer or user the has a GPO set.

Do read: 
And see here, Security options : 
Computer Configuration , by default the task is run in the security context of the SYSTEM account.

i noticed 
wbinfo --sid-to-name=S-1-5-18 on a 4.5.3 ADDC does not work
wbinfo --sid-to-name=S-1-5-18 on a 4.5.5 member does work.

Im still testing my 4.5.5. samba deb packages, so can someone confirm above that. This is resolved in 4.5.5. on the AD also? 
Then i'll have to speedup my testing and deploy 4.5.5 i really really need the system to get correct. 
Info about that getting correct, see these on the list: 


All info you need and steps to reproduces are found in subject : 
"Security Principals, and SID's mapping bug"
