[Samba] Windows 2000 and domain users

First the details:

Samba 2.2.3a running on Solaris 8 set up as a PDC.
Various systems running Windows 95/98/NT 4.0.

I've had absolutly no serious problems running
Samba in this configuration for the last couple
of years.  I've upgraded Samba as the new versions
have come out, and now need to integrate some new
Win2k boxes.

Problem is, when I add the new machines to the domain,
the group "DOMAIN\unix_group.2147483404" gets added to
both the Administrators group and Users group.  So domain
users start with Administrator rights!  If I remove
the "DOMAIN\unix_group.2147483404" group from the Administrators
group, it mucks thinks up bad enough to require a reinstall
of Win2k.  I'd like to think that this is not a required
feature of using Samba with Win2k.  I would like to restrict
users to the same rights as normal users, so I can lock down
who can install software on each individual machine.  As it
stands now, I can't do that.

I'm including the global section of my smb.conf, if it
