write list difficulties

I recently upgraded from samba-1.9.16p2 to samba-1.9.18p10 and now am having
some difficulties with "write list" that worked well on the samba-1.9.16p2 release.

my global section:

    server string = Radix Technologies Samba Server
   username map = /apps/samba/lib/users.map
   mangled map = (*.html *.htm)
   guest account = nobody
   lock directory = /apps/samba/var/locks
   preferred master = no
   wins server =

the share :

   comment = Document Control
   path = /apps/doccont
   public = yes
   read only = yes
   write list = @doccontrol
   create mask = 0775
   force group = doccontrol
   force user = lrodrigu
   preserve case = yes
   case sensitive = no
   short preserve case = yes

It worked with the older version....only folks in the unix group doccontrol
could write to it.  Now no one can write to it.

Have I missed something obvious?

Thanks in advance.
