[Samba] require_membership_of being ignored?

Hi, I'm setting up a Gentoo samba server for home directories on a 2003 ADS

I've decided to use pam_mkhomedir.to have the fileserver automagically create
their home when they first log in. But we don't want everyone to log in, just
the members of the AD group filesurfer-users.

The problem: Regardless of what I put as a require_membership_of= in the samba
pam file, any domain user can log in and a home directory is created.

I've attached a copy of /etc/pam.d/samba and /etc/samba/smb.conf.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
