Recent Upgrade to Fix SNAP Server Problem

Are you only having these problems when going through the SNAP server?  If you 
need snaps to authenticate via 2.2.x, I have a patch for that, but the domain 
group list doesn't work.

If you're using 3.0 for another reason, the SNAPs use an older API that 
doesn't (yet) get the group names for a user through the new groupdb or group 
mapping mechanisms in 3.0.   

Also, I think the new group mapping mechanism will take precedence over the 
domain admin group. See the group-mapping howto for more details.

PS: If someone can point out the preferred mechanism for taking a user name 
and turning it into a list of groups, I can fix that rNetUserGetGroups API to 
do so.  I have some code to use the groupdb.c stuff, but last time I checked 
that wasn't being used anywhere else.
