[Samba] Altered behavior in 3.0.25 and 3.0.24-gc-1

By mistake or by design membership in a Windows Primary Group seems to be mandatory!
We are using printservers configured as member servers of Samba domains.
with the following configuration
security = DOMAIN
password server = PDC
encrypt passwords = yes
map to guest = Bad Password
The Samba PDCs use plain smbpasswd files.
Since upgrading to 3.0.25 and regressing to 3.0.24-gc-1 some users couldn't
print (strange considering map to guest = Bad Password)
they got an NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL in log files and were refused printing.
The common denominator for users with print problems was the lack of mapping
from their GID to a SID
net groupmap add ntgroup="A new group" unixgroup=gidgroupname
solved the problem but it took a while to find out :-)
