Yes, and his smba3 is compiled by redhat? (Samba Version 3.6.9-151.el6)

Currently we know that he is using openldap at debian. So if he sets 
loglevel to 256 we may see which filters are used by samba and what the 
ldap server finds.

One will see that samba stops the evaluation if username is equal 
groupname. A nice exercise. Sure, I have only verified this with 
packages from sernet and debian/ubuntu. Maybe different behavior on 
suse, redhat, aix and others.
