Well, yes it would work to allow login to the computer, it is bypassing
Samba and going direct to the info stored in AD.

Er no, smbd asks winbind for the info and if this doesn't know who the
user is it fails, but after the user logs in, then it does.

yes one fail and then success, I use winbind and just the success, no

Yes and any Unix domain client running winbind can do the same. the
only place it doesn't fully work is on a Samba AD DC.

You cannot use nscd with winbind, their caches clash.

No you haven't, there are no lines for the '*' domain.

You should:

rowland@devstation:~$ wbinfo -i rowland
rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/rowland:/bin/bash
rowland@devstation:~$ getent passwd rowland
rowland:*:10000:10000:Rowland Penny:/home/rowland:/bin/bash

The only difference between your set up (apart for the OS) and mine, I
use winbind and have a correctly set up smb.conf.
