[Samba] embedded spaces in group names

Many of our NT domain groups have names that contain embedded spaces, like
"Domain Admins".  When I attempt to use winbind and assign rights via those
groups the granting fails.  Group names without embedded spaces, like
"Domain_Admins" work fine.

In smb.conf I've tested specifying the name as:

	"DOMAIN+Domain Admin"
	DOMAIN+Domain\ Admin and
	"DOMAIN+Domain\ Admin"

Is this supposed to work? If so, what is the proper way to specify the group
