hmmm...i'm sorry i cannot help you with this issue, but i can give some more precisions about this
strange effect.

I suppose you're using ldapsam_compat as ldap backend?

I used to use in my smb.conf the following:
passwd backend = tdbsam ldapsam_compat:ldap://
and had no issue with it.

As soon as i inverted sam backends:
passwd backend = ldapsam_compat:ldap:// tdbsam

net groupmap list didn't list any default or non default mapping.

Anybody has an explanation about this fact?
