I have already done it. In my nsswitch.conf I have "group: files 
winbind". I have opened a bug report because the problem has come up 
when I have upgraded my etch to lenny. Before the upgrade the group 
authentication was working without problem.

I don't know where the problem is but I'm pretty sure is not in samba: 
winbind resolve users and remote group membership, but doesn't work the 
membership of a remote user in a local group. So all software that need 
group authentication doesn't work: I think is a important bug. 
Furthermore if I log in as a local user the group authentication works 
without problem.

It is possible to reopen the bug?

Have a great day
