Bringing this on list so that someone else can drop in some wisdom if I 
miss...  Good logs btw.

Could we get some sysinfo here?  What passdb backend are you using?  OS 
and Samba version too if you don't mind, for posterity.

Ok, with that information we need to derive what SIDs you've got at work 
1. Your domain wants to run with this:   
2. The user you're going for is using this SID: 
   and a RID portion of:  -3118
3. The Domain Users group is resolving to SID:  
   and RID portion: -513

So with that info we can tell that the group SID is the inconsistant 
one.  The server tells it one thing, and then your user SID matches it.  
Your groupmap confirms some oddity is at work.

I'm curious how exactly you got to this point... You have all the 
requisite groups here but they aren't quite right.  You should delete 
the entries here that don't match the domain SID, in otherwords, the 
S-blah-blah37-XXX entries that are correctly mapped to unix groups.  IF 
you are running LDAP, which I can't tell, I would guess that you 
populated your passdb with smbldap-populate before configuring the 
parameters properly.  In that case, just delete the samba attributes 
from your posix group objects (participant, etc), the groupmap.tdb (name 
may not be accurate), re-run the populate script and do the groupmap again.

Post back how this strikes you.
