That's great (sorry to ask this, but that user does
only exist in the NT domain, right? So you are sure
it's using that account!) wbinfo is good for checking
stuff like this!

nt groups! I wish I could get this working! IIRC the 
version of samba I'm using (2.2.5) doesn't like
converting nt group ids to their names. Though wbinfo
works a treat...

I believe later versions of samba fix this. I've not
corrected it yet as it's not a necessity..

again, you might want to use wbinfo to see just what's
going on...

man smb.conf - it's verbose but I'm sure it will give
you many ideas.
