Get a copy of MS's ifmember.exe and issue it with the /list switch while logged into Windows with a domain account. That will show you which groups you are a member of on the domain and local 
workstation. Likely you have something amiss in the group mapping area.

I cover that sort of thing in my Samba presentation:
"Samba 3 PDC for Windows Clients and Samba 3 Book Review"

Start on page 7 of the presentation. I do not use LDAP in this presentation, so the EXACT solution will be different in your case.
