Yes, I know that discussion, and if you read the corresponding bug 
report, the case that was mentioned (which is outdated already, please 
look for info on idmap_sss for Samba for combining the two) is if sssd 
and winbind run against the same domain and both derive information for 
the same user base. There are later bug reports which explicitly state 
that the corresponding note, which was added to the documentation at the 
beginning of this year, is outdated again/should be fixed.

Anyway, all this doesn't apply to my case, as sssd and winbind run 
against completely different authentication sources, and from what I 
could gather from the Samba bug report I mentioned, the problem is that 
sss is not reentrant as an authentication source, whereas winbind is, 
which causes mayhem when looking up accounts that are in neither source. 
sssd has this fixed in some version which doesn't appear to be in Debian 
yet. But I'll leave it at that and now try to get some information on 
the patch that's required. Have a pleasant afternoon.
