Hi Andrew,

So if I need to refresh the users groups on each login, would I then 
need to clear these samlogon entries on my own?   Can I tell winbind not 
to store them in the first place?

Why does it appear that without doing this, the users groups get updated 
sometimes and not other times?

And then what is the "winbind cache time" ?
