[K12OSN] samba-winbind-ads setup

Forgive what seems like confusion, but I've also had an iteration of my
samba-winbind-ads setup where I've only gotten usernames.  Frankly, it
doesn't matter to me what wbinfo returns, as long as it works.  That's why
I've swept everything away to start fresh.  So, let's approach this as if
it's a completely clean canvas.

When I run winbind -u on my system that still uses winbind (I can't wait
to get all my UIDs on my 3 linux systems in sync....aaaaah), I don't get
the MYDOMAIN\user, I just get user.   Try using smbclient -U username
//system/share and see if you can connect using that user.  If it
doesn't work, try MYDOMAIN\username instead as the user.   Did you have
"winbind use default domain" set to YES?  When you do that, it removes
the MYDOMAIN\ part, so it handles like a normal unix user.
