What I'm going to test is dumping sssd entirely and just using winbind 
instead.  I just went through another 2-hour long iteration of twiddling 
with sssd.conf and restarting sssd endless times trying to get something 
working. So far, at least authenticating against a Samba DC, I haven't 
had issues like this with winbind.  Admittedly, the stuff I'm currently 
doing with sssd is more complicated than my single Samba AD-DC 
deployment, but that's what testing is for.

That said, there are several users on this list using winbind with sssd, 
so it's possible; i.e. the statement below isn't entirely true.

With our upcoming software version we'll update the OS to Ubuntu 20.04. (i.e. samba 4.13.17). Thus we probably need to tackle the update sooner than later.
