[Samba] what OS do you use for Samba?

Since you and I are using the same version of Ubuntu and both have our 
servers integrated into Active Directory, you would expect similar 
behavior configurations notwithstanding. As we've discussed earlier, I 
have no problems with nested groups. I think you're barking up the wrong 
tree thinking upgrading will solver your problem. I'm unconvinced.

Out of curiosity, do you have any explicit group denial settings on the 
target folder that the user in question might have membership? I believe 
denies overrule grants, but I'm not positive.
