There's no mention of smbgrioupedit in the cvs docs
so apparently this has been fixed already.

You can change the rid but you also need a mapping
to match a unix group IIRC.

This has been fixed in 3.0.1pre3

What warning?  Could you forward the excat message?

Fix the files name.  This has been convered in threads before
(and I don't remember the exact syntax, but it is scriptable).
