[Samba] groupmap not working correctly

Currently, my company is trying to deploy a Samba 3.0 server with an 
LDAP back end, for domain authentication. Everything's going extremely 
well so far except for one facet: net groupmap doesn't seem to play well 
with LDAP. I can make the mappings just fine:

hank:/var# net groupmap list
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-616220168-3974143565-3883354751-513) -> users
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-616220168-3974143565-3883354751-512) -> wheel

However, when it comes to actually giving these users the permissions, 
it isn't done. Members of wheel aren't given Administrative privilege on 
Domain Member machines. And I can't seem to figure out if there's a way 
to view the membership of a group through Windows dialogs, so I can 
verify whether or not the correct users are indeed members.

Has anyone else had a problem similar to this, or can give me pointers 
as to where to proceed from here?
