[Samba] domain user part of unix group problem

I'm trying to allow a specific windows user to be able to access a samba
share which points to the /var/log/squid directory on my squid proxy
server and read the access.log files there. The permissions on the
access.log file are below...
-rw-r----- 1 squid squid 17M Jul 23 02:59 access.log
Now, I've tried adding the name of the domain users account to the unix
group "squid" but I'm still getting access denied errors. If I chmod 644
the access.log then the windows user can read the file fine but I'm
trying to avoid 644 and stick to 640.
If I 'chown squid:"Domain Admins" access.log' then the user can also
access it that way but again, I'd prefer to keep it squid:squid. How is
it that I can successfully make the domain user read the access.log file
successfully as a member of the unix group "squid" with the permissions
Winbind is functioning properly and all of the standard tests succeed
such as "wbinfo -g, wbinfo -u" etc.
