I wonder if this problem would be better solved with appropriate use of
the group sticky bit (chmod g+s) on the directory?

Other than that, we sometimes play a bit 'fast and loose' with NT4
groups, due to the way we have to reterive them.  This means that we set
the primary group to 'domain users' for 'getent' bulk requests.  I'm not
sure what we are currently doing for other lookups.
