Yes, it does, but the woes I'm having are related to users, not groups. 
If I specify:

valid users = @DOMAIN+"Domain Users"

or even

valid users = @DOMAIN+"Domain Admins", @DOMAIN+"Sales Group"

it works just fine. However, if I try to limit it to [a] specific user(s):

valid users = batkins

it fails miserably. The strange thing is that I have a nearly identical 
server with which this configuration works just fine.

Thanks for the response. I was beginning to wonder if my messages were 
going into limbo...
