[Samba] Samba PDC and User Management with Perl scripts

I want to implement a perl logon script which would map network shares
depending on group membership. This way when I move a user to or from a
it automatically gets the new shares.

The PDC is Samba 2.2.1 or 2.2.2 on BSD and clients are NT workstation
and 2000 Pro.
Perl is latest activestate for win32 and is intended to run on Win32

The big trouble is getting user Group membership to work when I call
Win32::Lanman::GroupIsMember() or LocalGroupIsMember().
Right now, even though Samba is configured OK they always return false,
even if a user is member of a group.
I can use User Manager to view user and group information...

Am I trying to use functions not implemented yet?
