What do you get if you run the following (as root) giving her unix login
as argument:


int main(int argc, char **argv)
struct passwd *pw = getpwnam(argv[1]);
int rc;

rc = initgroups(argv[1], pw->pw_gid);
assert(rc == 0);

rc = getgroups(0, NULL);

printf("Number of groups for %s: %d\n", argv[1], rc);

If this returns the correct number then the culpit is the method of login.

If this returns 64 then winbind, winbind_nss or maybe (but unlikely) the
libc is to blaim..
