Hi Alan,
I do not know how you came about this setup, but from a quick glance the 
sid defined in alexander's Primary Group SID is incorrect:
Domain Users' sid is defined by
SID: S-1-5-21domain-513 (from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/243330)
So it seems to me that:
1) you have additional -513 appended at the end
2) Your domain portion of the sid for Primary Group SID is different to 
the one used in the User SID and to the ones listed by net groupmap admins
So shouldn't alexander's Primary Group SID be
