Yup.  A lot has changed.  Jeremy has been working on the uid <-> RID
mapping.  The GROUP_RID that is passed back is derived from the user's
actual unix gid rather than the DOMAIN_ADMIN_GROUP_RID.  This is
probably what has broken the functionality for the moment.

I posted some more comments about this recently ( in this 
same thread ).
