[Samba] Can't add 'Domain Users'-group to local groups

Whenever I try to add the global group 'Domain Users' (or the 'Domain
Admins') to a local group (for example 'Power Users') I get the following
error (translated from dutch):

   The following error has occured while trying to store properties for
group Power Users on computer X
    "Can't add or delete a member from local group because member doesn't

Is this supposed to happen? I actually can add any particular user at the
domain to any local group but that would be a problom to administer. It
would be nice if I could add the 'Domain Users' (or 'Domain Admins') to a
local group.
