Witch groups have you added? The mapped group should be still exists in 
the new samba installation

On our server all the previously groups seems correctly mapped again 
with the new samba.
There are only some difference: in 3.0.14 some unused groups are mapped 
to a single number

System Operators (S-1-5-32-549) -> -1
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> -1
Guests (S-1-5-32-546) -> -1
Power Users (S-1-5-32-547) -> -1
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> -1
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> -1
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> -1
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> -1
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> -1

but with the new samba 3.0.24 this groups disappears from the "net 
groupmap list"  output.
These group are not necessary and nobody use them. The main groups are 
mapped correctly

Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-64XXXXX-514) -> msguests
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-64XXXXX-513) -> msusers
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-64XXXXX-512) -> msadmins
