Did you recompile Samba? I'm not sure, but from what you
write sounds like you did not.

If you want official Ubuntu repos with that patch, you need
to contact Canonical support about this. You might also
contact one of the companies listed under
http://samba.org/samba/support to assist you to compile
Samba for you.

That's a valid request. But apparently you found a but in
what Ubuntu ships. One thing to look at might be to remove
the "force group". If you can live without that, it might
help you work around that bug.
