Primary GID based access when this GID is NOT part of resolved Windows security token

I don't mean to be confrontational. If I thought I had a bug I would possibly do as you suggest. Until I know the intended behaviour (ie the design) I cannot distinguish between bug and enhancement, nor where I would start looking as the best place for enhancement code. Why would submitting suggested code get us any further?
What is "top post"? Does that mean I should not reply to my own subject, asking again? If so what should I do, just give up after a few weeks with no reply? These are honest questions and not meant to be confrontational.
My other option is to log a support call via Oracle I guess, and see if they have a procedure for moving such problems forward - perhaps I will try that but it will be a whole lot of effort there too.
Essentially I am contributing here! I did spend many hours debugging to reach my conclusion and to present the findings. I am pointing out there is an important and definite problem here. I am not waiting nor expecting some fixes per se, just some discussion/acknowledgement etc. If there is no audience then I will stop wasting time looking for replies.
I am really not sure how this process should work when there are no replies to the subject at all, that is all.

Please don't top post.
I don't think there is a single developer with such responsibility. If you think you've found a bug: https://bugzilla.samba.org/ If you've got a patch, post it, or attach it to the bugzilla entry.
[BTW: I'm not a samba developer, but to me: you're coming across pretty confrontational - hence the tone above. You might want to try a more collaborative approach for this kind of project.]
