Group authentication errors

I'm running samba 2.2.1 on two Solaris 2.6 servers. I changed the
server authentication level to server the other day. This was
very well received by most of my users. They are so happy to
not have to type their password multiple times.
The problem is I have some that are being partially rejected.
For instance, I have a couple of users, they can access
the server, and their NIS home directory, but if they try to access
a share they are being rejected with the following error.
The valid users line includes a group they are a member of, but still
denies them until I add their username to the valid users list.
The group, however, is not the primary gid. Any thoughts would be
[2001/11/19 17:01:49, 1] smbd/password.c:pass_check_smb(554)
Couldn't find user 'person' in smb_passwd file.
[2001/11/19 17:01:49, 1] smbd/reply.c:reply_sesssetup_and_X(1005)
Rejecting user 'person': authentication failed
My globals section looks like:
security = server
password server = SERVER.STD
workgroup = domain
netbios name = sambaserver
server string = Samba %v on (%L)
log level = 1
log file = /net/adm/samba/samba-logs/samba.log.sambaserver
# log file = /usr/local/samba/log/samba.logs.%L
name resolve order = hosts wins bcast
# wins proxy = Yes
wins server = 131.101.XXX.XXX
username map = /net/std/adm/samba/usermap.txt
homedir map = u_auto.ah
NIS homedir = Yes
include = /net/std/adm/samba/smb.conf.editme
path = /net/projects/share
valid users = @all-eng-users, @431, @projects-1, @projects,\
@projects-3, @projects-4, @projects-2, @projects-mtest,\
force group = projects
read only = No
create mask = 0775
directory mask = 0775
And yes, the group is a recognized group in the NIS domain.
