[Samba] wheel problem

I have a local user acct (no LDAP or AD).  I have assigned this user to the wheel group.  It use to be able to access all shares on a mount. Recently I get "Access Denied" (Windows XP ProSP3) 

smb log says: 


smbd[16758]: check_reduced_name: couldn't get realpath for /mnt/users/backup/* 

The user is a local administrator on WinXP and is sending those auth credentials.  The user has no trouble accessing their own share of course. 

Have any others run into this?  Should I try something like this (this is the only thing that I can come up with in the many weeks of research) 

net groupmap add ntgroup="Builtin Admins" unixgroup=domadm rid=544 type=d 

thank you in advance!
