This is not a samba thing, you'll get the same problem with NT.

I think there is a utility in the NT Resource kit that will detect group
membership from a batch file. You could also try Kixstart or even write your
logon script in VB Script and use some of the WSH 2.0 facilities to detect
NT groups & permissions.
