I need to look into it further (to make it work better with the primary
group RID being in the passdb but not being related to the user's
primary unix group), but the error isn't fatal.  Any drive mapping
problems you have lie elsewhere (unless you are mapping a drive to a
share on a domain member, in which case there could be issue).
