Thank you, I'll be taking a look at that next.  I am just perplexed that 
  samba as an AD member server cannot check UNIX groups for membership 
while it can otherwise.

I already have the machine in Active Directory and domain users can 
access shares on it - they gave me a "Domain Admin" account long enough 
to join AD, but not longer.
