request not supported (setgroups call)

Hi everyone - I'm having problems logging into my samba-tng 1.9 domain.  I
get an error stating "The request is not supported by the network" on my
Win98 laptop.  The computer trust account  and username are both added to
the smbpasswd file as well as /etc/passwd .  My log.netlogon files
contains the following error:

ERROR: sys setgroups call failed!
TODO: verify that the rid exists

In a previous post regarding this problem, someone said that they solved
the problem by reverting to tng-1.0 .  I was wondering if there's some
other way to solve this without reverting to an old version.  If anyone
has any info or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
