Ah,  ok...  so  now  it's impossible by design to change the primary group
using pdbedit, right?

Which  leads  to  the  next  question: is it a good idea (from the windows
clients  point of view) to have the "administrator" user belong to "domain
users"  as  the primary group and "domain admins" as a secondary group, or
is  it  better to change the unix group of the adiministrator user to make
it have "domain admins" as the primary group?
