I've found that when using groups in 'valid-users=' they only work when
the group specified is the users primary group.  Is this by design, or
is there a problem there?  My setup is Samba-3.0.9 on Solaris 9 sparc
with user accounts and groups in openldap (openldap is not being used as
a backend by samba though).  My nsswitch.conf file is configured to look
at boths ldap and files for passwd and groups.
