Running Samba Version 3.0.13.  I want to have a share that is only
accessible by users who are a member of a specific A.D. Group.  Below is
the share definition:

  comment = Access to guidehome Development
  path = /usr/local/apache2/guidehome/development
  browseable = yes
  writeable = yes
  force group = Dir-Websv03p-Apacheroot-Guidehome-Development
  valid users =
  force create mode = 0775
  force directory mode = 6775

The permissions on the directory are:

websv03p:/usr/local/apache2/guidehome/development # l
total 716
drwxrwsrwx   29 i11689   dir-websv03p-apacheroot-guidehome-development
4096 Jun 13 10:35 ./
drwxrwsr-x    3 root     it_all       4096 May  5  2004 ../

With this configuration a member of the
Dir-Wwebsv03p-Apacheroot-Guidehome-Development group isn't allowed
access to the share.  If I comment out the valid users directive I'm
then able to access it, but so are users who aren't members.
