samba 3.0 pre 21: group mapping and private groups?

I have samba 3.0 pre21 here, and a "private groups" installation, meaning 
that every user has an own group named like the user's login (user ONEUSER 
has primary group ONEUSER).

I have used smbgroupedit to map my unix group "users" to the power users 
group (it's a shame, almost all windows applications require users having 
power users' rights). But now, if I log into my samba-controlled domain, 
log.smbd tells me that the user's primary group is not a NT-group.... and 
that NT doesn't like this ;-)

So, how can I use the mapping with private groups? Or is this something to 

Thank You, CU Lars.
