The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 7999
Using "winbind separator" in smb.conf makes "winbind use default domain = yes" pointless

This might be seen as a feature, but at least some documentation adjustment could be made.
When using "winbind separator" in smb.conf, it seems that "winbind use default domain = yes" is not longer honored. That is an apparent regression from 3.2.*
Our user even found out that inverted both options in smb.conf makes things work again.
Please notice that I didn't have the setup to reproduce this so I entirely rely on the Debian user

Volker, could you comment on this one, please?
winbind separator = \\
winbind use default domain = yes
becomes (run testparm -v)
winbind separator = \winbind use default domain = yes
This is documented in 'man smb.conf' with:
Any line ending in a “\” is continued on the next line in the customary UNIX fashion.
Closing as invalid.
