Hey Gang,

I have a suse 8.1 server that I have compiled samba 3.0.2 from source on. 
I have it configured to authenticate against our AD.  That seems to be
working fine.

getent passwd produces the results from both passwd and AD.  getent group
gives me the groups + the AD groups.  I was able to assign the permissions
to the folder without problems.  It picked up the group from AD and
assigned it to the folder.

I changed the owner to be my AD account and it let me view the folder, but
when it's just assigned at the group level, I am unable to read/write to
the folder.  So it appears as though it's not able to do a group lookup to
grant me permissions to the folder.

Here is the folder listing and the logs.
