i am not the best expert the mailing list has to offer, but i think when you are using ad and winbind you need group information locally and in ad + mapping between ad and local groups - otherwise you will step into various problems. alternatives are (1) switching off winbind (then samba falls back to local group information only) or (2) administer your local groups via ad rfc2307 schema extension + winbind + nsswitch.
