Last month, I updated to Fedora 10 with samba 3.2.11-0.30.fc10 via a
complete reinstall. Using x86-64.  We are now experiencing a problem on a
share with the force user parameter.

        comment = Test Share
        path = /home/zz
        force user = zzadminp
        create mask = 0770
        directory mask = 0770

The primary group of zzadminp above is admplus.

If user markoren with primary group ntadmin writes a file to the above
share, the file owner is markoren and the file group is admplus.

-rwxrw---- 1 markoren admplus 94 2009-05-12 19:51 MAOtestfilezz8.txt

Samba is setting the primary group of the forced user properly, but is not
setting the forced user as the owner.
