'winbind normalize names' doesn't work for users
Last modified: 2017-12-01 16:41:53 UTC
If the option ''winbind normalize names' is set, we do not normalize usernames in wb_getpwsid().
$ getent passwd EARTH+alice_one
EARTH+alice one:*:100001106:100000513:Alice One:/home/EARTH/alice one:/bin/bash
Patch will follow.

patch for 4.6
This adds a call to find_domain_from_name_noinit() which may cause auth failures with users from domains that are not in the list of trusted domains.
Commit 1ce165a7335 in master changes this to only call find_domain_from_name_noinit() if "winbind normalize names" is enabled (default to off), so somewhat relieves the situation.
