it's me again ;)


- Suse Linux 8.0
- OpenLdap 2.1
- Samba 3.0.0

I'm successfully using this combination in my domain with one exception 
(i think it's my fault) :

if a user is member in more than _one_ group, his access to 
/home/$USERNAME is denied

the samba logs say, this folder doesn't exist and windows authenticates 
the user correctly but fails, when giving him his server-side profile 
(doesn't exist, couldn't be found or missing permissions)

if i put the user in just one group back again, it works

the permissions on /home/$USERNAME are 0700 for $USERNAME.$PRIMGROUP

in my example the user was in group Users (Primary) and Domadmins 

plz help me (again)
if you want, i'll attach a log file
