[Samba] samba winbind and local unix groups.

Why does samba+winbind ignore the local unix groups ?

I have joined my samba server to Windows NT.

I have configured a share with the values:

path = /home/prueba #Perms are 777
comment = prueba de grupos locales
writable = yes
create mask = 775
directory mask = 775
browsable = yes
valid users = @localgroup

If I use a group from Windows NT, there is no problem accessing the  share,

but we do not want to add / change groups in Windows NT, we need to add users to our local samba (in /etc/groups)
