This is due to samba not correclty looking up SIDs of the domain. I see 
the same on a samba member server of a samba domain.

At least in your situation you can fix it, by running winbind, whereas I 
have no recourse, except possible to make all member servers use LDAP 
and security=user .... who knows.
