Ok, tested the following:

W2K3AD (win2003sp1 native domain)

W2K3AD trusts WINDOWS (nt4 domain)

WINDOWS\vl is member of global group WINDOWS\global

WINDOWS\global is member of W2K3AD\doml1

XPPRO (an XPSP2 workstation) is member of W2K3AD.

If I grant access rights for W2K3AD\doml1 on a directory on XPPRO, smbclient
can cd into that directory. If I revoke access to W2K3AD\doml1, I get

To me this sounds as if we have a problem in winbind, as "domain->primary"
would point to WINDOWS, "domain" is vl's domain, not our primary one.

Hmmm. Could you follow me? :-)
