Did you mean NT group name + NT user name are the same? That should not
be the case on my test systems. I used a freshly installed NT system + SP4
with only the default groups and the local administrator. On the PDC side
the smbpasswd contains only '<machine>$' and 'walter'. No 'domain group map'
or any other map is defined at the stage I am at.

What is the current requirement for unix groups (at least now)? Is it required
that all group names are no user names? Or at least for groups the user who
logs in belongs to? Or for groups that are mapped to NT groups?
