[Samba] Samba not recognizing secondary groups

Good point re: the lack of details.  This is Linux PPC with a 2.4.21 
kernel.  I don't think winbind is involved, nor is anything fancy like 
LDAP.  Just the old flat passwd/group/shadow files with security=user. 
Since I can connect via SFTP, and since other users are getting along 
fine, and since allowing the user in via universal rw access helps, I'm 
guessing this is an issue with Samba not reading the groups properly. 
I'll take yours suggestions and download the RC of 3.0.11 when it comes 
out, and perhaps that will fix it.

So there was a known bug with multiple group membership?
