Bug Description

In Ubuntu 8.10 winbind (version 2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3.4) dont obey the paramater "winbind use default domain = yes" when use the command "getent group". The domain part isn't excluded.


getent group

administradores de esquemas:x:10006:CREDIMEPI\Administrador
administração de empresa:x:10007:CREDIMEPI\Administrador
controladores de domínio:x:10005:

The correct output would be:

administradores de esquemas:x:10006:Administrador
administração de empresa:x:10007:Administrador
controladores de domínio:x:10005:

Seems complete enough for a developer to say, if it is true or not.

I am also seeing this behavior on 8.10 w/Winbind authenticating to an Windows AD server.

Is there a known work around for this? I checked and it does not look like there is a newer samba/winbind version available for 8.10.
