Yup, the "Primary Group" setting was the problem.
I had no idea Samba was going to work in that way.

Does anyone know the workaround?  Because if I am
going to need to use Primary Groups only, my Samba
installation is going to be very short-lived...

Is Accounting the primary group?? 
If not, that's the problem, though I understand there
is a workaround.....I have seen the workaround, just
don't remember what it is.
