Hi Dale:

I grabbed version 23c, built and installed it, but had no success so far...

Maybe you can clarify this a little bit - When I log in into Winbloze, I use the
domain MYDOM.  In reality, this domain is called MYDOM.MYORG.COM.  The domain
has a group called mygroup.  From this, winbindd (using "_" as separator)
created the group "MYDOM_mygroup" which I used in the config file.  With the new
scheme, do I have to use "@MYDOM.MYORG.COM\mygroup", or is "@MYDOM\mygroup"

Apart from that, what is the /default/ access mode to the printers?  Maybe it
would be interesting to see where the printer access fails.  Any help is welcome
- this is really a show-stopper, and I don't want to make everybody an admin!
