[Samba] Strange problem - Samba 3.0.23 on Solaris 9 Sparc

Hi, we have deployed successfully Linux clients to an Active Directory domain 
with Samba 3.0.23. We had no problem with the ads authentication, winbind, 
kerberos, and id resolutions.

Late we did the same on a test Solaris 9 x86 server, with a successful result 

Our problem begins with a production Solaris 9 Sparc server, everything runs 
succesful, but there is just one user on the Active Directory that when we 
change some group membership, the changes are not reflected on the Solaris 9 
server (verifying with groups command)... is very strange because for other 
users it is working perfectly.

We thought that the winbind cache was implicated so we deleted the files and 
ran the daemon in no-caching mode, without success....

¿Does someone has any clue? Thanks!

P.D.: Attached are the config files.
