"set primary group script" is called either on client (Windows?) request 
or when SID of the primary group does not correspond to the primary 
group of the user account. The first one has nothing to do with Samba - 
it just responds to request. The second one can be caused either by 
change to the group mapping of this primary group or by some kind of bug 
in Samba. To know if it's really a bug you should provide smbd log with 
"log level = 5" from the moment computer is added to the domain till the 
moment "set primary group script" is called.
