[Samba] Samba3 "Remote Desktop Users" Group

I have installed a Windows Terminal Server, wich is a member of a Samba 3

I would like grant some users the right of logging into this terminal
serverer with the terminal services client (mstsc). This doesen't work out
of the box because they must be a member of the "Remote Desktop Users"
group (or a domain admin). I tried to map the Remote Desktop Users group
to the corresponding unix group with "net groupmap":
Remote Desktop Users (S-1-5-21-1439455158-136671433-3190722721-555) ->

I also tried this mapping:

Remote Desktop Users (S-1-5-21-32-555) -> rdesktop

... but none of the above mappings does work, the users still don't have
the right to login to the terminal server.

The Remote Desktop Users is a builtin group of windows servers, maybe
there must be some special handling with this group.

I'm using Samba 3.0.0rc2, on FreeBSD 5.1
