[Samba] Samba 3.0.23c-1.fc5 problem - groups

Hi there,
I use FC5.
I discovered, for an exemple, if you have a user group with 3 members (Alan,
Baker, Clive), before 3.0.23c this line at smb.conf worked fine:
valid users = @user
But with 3.0.23c update it doesn't work anymore.
You have to replace the line like this:
valid users = Alan, Baker, Clive
I mean, replace the "@groupname" with the complete userlist of the group
separated by commas.
It´s a quick solution, but some groups are big and it´s kind of hard to do
that with all of them.
Apparently, other people are experiencing the same problem, as related at
fedora forum (http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=125460
I´d appreciate any help or comments.
Attached my smb.conf and logs.
The workstation I´m trying to access the shares from is a Windows XP one,
and it´s name is "rbsm204".
The user is "felipe" and he belongs to "admin" group.
I found this at my workstation log (attached):
