[Samba] Permissions across servers

I have a problem that I stumbled across a solution for on a list while
searching for something else but can't find again.
It's down to permissions propogating from a Samba PDC across member
servers. I'm using 3.0.28c which according to the release notes uses the
+Domain\group notation for declaring permissions in smb.conf.
I am at the following position:
LDAP/Samba on the PDC works and I can su to a UNIX/LDAP users account
on the CLI. Getent passwd returns all the users and getent groups
returns all the groups. wbinfo -u and -g work as they should and net
groupmap list returns groupmappings consitent across all the servers.
If I use Windows security properties on XP however I get (Unix
User\User). Both the PDC and the member servers are soined to the domain
and have the domain SID in smb.conf. So the question really, is when
setting unix permissions on files on the member server, how do you
differentiate between UNIX and Domain users.
The closest I've found to a solution in the last two days was someone
with the same question who got the answer "this has been covered
elsewhere so I won't for over it again". I'm not being lazy, I have been
looking and I'd appreciate the help.
