are you sure you did not try with the first group in which the user belong
? The group code is mostly working, it's just picky about which unix
groups you can use.

I talk with Luke about this already, it need to be cleaned before
Jeremy's mega-merge or it will be zap'ed.

first one is Luke's current toy... Second one is IIRC to extract the
hardcoded builtin accounts for the code and put them in a file to have
'national' builtin accounts.

yes, the code :-) I'm in lack of time, I'll post something this week on
samba-ntdom to explain how works the new printing code.

it's broken since the inclusion of the VFS abstraction layer. A
connection_struct parameter is missing somewhere.
