No, this is not exactly true. You forget the 'guest account' option,
that have the default value 'nobody'.

So, even not specifying guest mapping, guest account are mapped to

Ok, perfectly clear. But manpage seems to me say something different:

 This parameter specifies whether the winbindd(8) daemon should operate
 on users without domain component in their username. Users without a
 domain component are treated as is part of the winbindd server's own domain.

'own domain' for me is 'workgroup'. And really i don't understand why
an option like that have to strip ALL domain part, and not only the
'own' one...
