[Samba] Winbind showing wrong entries

Hi there

I have two samba servers with winbind (debian etch) getting users from
the same Windows DC.

on one of both I get wrong results calling getent group:


The group BUILTIN+administrators does not have Unix-attributes set and
it is not showing on the other samba server.

I tried to delete the winbind cache
/etc/init.d/winbind stop
/bin/rm -f /var/lib/samba/winbindd_idmap.tdb
/bin/rm -f /var/cache/winbindd_cache.tdb
/etc/init.d/winbind start

but this didn't change anything.

I also sniffed the traffic using wireshark but I don't find anything
containing "BUILTIN" in the ldap-traffic...

Does anyone have an idea?
