[Samba] Samba 3.6.10 not reading groups

The problem seems to be when 'security = SHARE' is set.  It works just fine when 'security = USER'.
Seeing as 4.0 removed the option to set SHARE, I guess it's moot for that release...

Unfortunate, but what can be done...

Might be related to my bug:

Unfortunately I'm not getting any traction on it. From my testing
there still hasn't, after 10 releases, been a fully usable 3.6.x and
now it's claimed to be in "maintenance mode" due to the release of
Samba 4.x, which I guess must not have any major issues.
