Dear samba list,

We did more tests on this topic and I'd like to give more precisions. 
Here's a small tab illustrating our tests

Samba version    -    AD Version    -    Usage of primary group with the 
valid users's option of a share
3.5.6 (debian stable)    -    Windows 2003    -     Works
3.5.6 (debian stable)    -    Samba 4 rc 5    -        Permission denied
3.6.3 (and higher - ubuntu LTS & debian backports tested)    -     
Windows 2003    -    Works
3.6.3 (and higher - ubuntu LTS & debian backports tested)    -     Samba 
4 rc 5    -    Works

If somebody knows the source of this issue, we'll be pleased to have 
more information.

If not, we'll use the workaround of the empty "valid users" option.
