This is on a windows 7 client machine (a domain member) from a samba4 
(sernet 4.1.4) AD DC. I realise it is advised not to use the DC for 
filesharing. Perhaps that is my issue?

"id username" shows all groups as expected.

I am using sssd for my linux users, but I was expecting the situation 
above to be (basicaly) a samba4 <-> windows7client interaction.

Andrew Bartlett responded also very kindly responded to my question, but 
since the recent sssd discussions etc, I thought I should try to use his 
proposal. (the built in winbind and nss_winbind on the AD DC)

But I'm not sure where to search for the root of this issue... My own 
config, sssd, sernet packages, somewehere else...?
