[Samba] AD group membership limits?

I'm running Samba 3.0.11 on RedHat ES 3 kernel version 2.4.21-15.0.4.ELsmp
and have a quick question about AD group membership limits

Am I right in assuming that Samba is limited by the group membership
parameters (ie NGROUP = 32) imposed by the Linux kernel? Is there any
workaround in Samba for this?

At the moment if a user is a member of more then 32 domain groups they
cannot access any shares. If I remove some of the groups to below the 32
group limit everything is fine.

If there isn't a workaround in Samba has anyone reliably recompiled the
kernel and run Samba after changing the group parameters?
I guess this must be a fairly common problem in a lot of sites?

Any help with this much appreciated.
