Hi, me again.

This issue has continued to cause all kinds of havoc here. Seemingly randomly
certain users lose their group memberships (according to Windows). Some users
will be fine, others will be broken.. at the same time. My account seems to
always work fine, but it was created in the same way as my boss' account which
continues to have trouble. We even went as far as to delete his account and
home dir and recreate them, but it only worked for an hour or so an was broken
again when I left work this afternoon.

This afternoon we went ahead and upgraded samba thinking our version was old
enough to have some bugs (3.0.10 to 3.0.14). No change.

We are looking for ANY help on this issue. We are running NSCD, but a 
restart of
NSCD doesn't change anything. Nor does a reboot of the entire server.
