Very strange. I've recreated a new user and put it in all groups and he
was inmediately in all groups.
What does mean to log in? Is "smbclient //server/share -U user%pw"
Connecting "sta" with smbclient has access to all groups. 
Making su - sta ; id Not all groups will be shown.

By creating a new object we generate a new unix id and save it into the
 rfc2307 attributes: uidNumber,gidNumber. We wanted to separate this
from the winbind "automatic" id-s. If a user or group has an unix-id
30XXX then we know immediately something went wrong :-)
