Hi Craig and William,
my tests are successful until now.

All this tests are successful:
- getent passwd, getent group, id, groups, finger, su
- smbldap-useradd, smbldap-groupadd
- chown username file
- chgrp group file
- sendmail/dovecot/ceti-poppassd
- emails to/from yahoo/hotmail/gmail

if I pass the username and group to chown, it fails. I have to use like 
# touch /tmp/test1
# chown root.root /tmp/test1
# chown -v this.is.avery.long.username /tmp/test1
# chgrp -v this.is.avery.long.username /tmp/test1

Thanks for the comments,
