Description Clock 2004-02-17 07:17:54 UTC
man smb.conf version 3.0.2:
"              Please note that setting this parameter  to  +  causes  problems
              with  group membership at least on glibc systems, as the charac-
              ter + is used as a special character for NIS in /etc/group.
However in example configuration the winbind separator through Samba HOWTO Collection is routinely used as '+'.
