[Samba] Using groups in workgroup mode

I am trying to use membership of a UNIX group to define who has write access
to a particular share on my samba server but this is not working. The server
is in workgroup mode aka security = user mode and I'm using the line 'write
list = @staff' to define that only users in the UNIX group staff have write
access to a particular share. I haven't been able to tell from the
documentation or googling, but I think that this is failing because the
'write list' option directive is designed to accept SMB users and SMB
groups, not UNIX groups as options. Is that the case?
