[Samba] non-primary group permissions

I have a problem that if I set a file or directory group owner, users 
that are members of this group can still not access it unless this is 
their primary group.

This is using samba 3.0rc3, all user and group info is coming from 
winbind and permissions work as expected when using a linux shell but 
not from a windows client.

The problem goes away if I use the 'force group' option on the share, 
but this still means that ony one group can be of any use for that 
share.  Is this expected behaviour or is something going wrong?
