[Samba] PANIC: failed to set gid

Please see my post to the mailing list just yesterday on this very topic
with Subject "can't change user passwords from xp client machines."

I posted log excerpts with the same error, and my smb.conf.

No one has posted yet with any ideas as to what the problem is. I understand
that it used to work on my domain too some time ago, before I came on, but
it doesn't work now, and there has been no change to the smb.conf.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem might be?
