The group list problem you describe is identical to mine of a week ago.
Seems to be related to schema and the ability of ldap to do substring
searches against the sambaSID attribute.

I made the problem go away by using a the latest samba,
samba(3).schema, and changing sambaSID indexing in slapd.conf from eq,
to eq,pres,sub, and slapindexing my ldap data.

Now I've got some different problems where machine domain membership
seems to be flakey, and I have to track that down, so I'm not
recommending my fix yet.
