Samba PDC group list problem

Hello, forums.
I have i strange issue with latest stable samba server (3.6.8).
The problem is, that i cant get group list on the Windows client machine.
User list works fine - i can see all the users available on samba domain.
But, when i try to get groups, - i just get an empty list.
Have anyone seen this problem before? This is my config:

workgroup = ASC
netbios name = ASC-DC
server string = Primary Domain Controler
obey pam restrictions = Yes
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %U
passwd chat = *New*password* %n\n *Please*retype*new*password* %n\n *password*successfully*updated*
passwd chat debug = Yes
unix password sync = Yes
log level = 1
syslog = 0
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 1000
load printers = No
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -g 504 -d /dev/null -s /bin/False %U
logon script = %U.bat
logon path =
logon drive = O:
domain logons = Yes
os level = 65
preferred master = Yes
domain master = Yes
dns proxy = No
wins support = Yes

recycle:exclude_dir = /tmp
recycle:exclude = *.tmp
recycle:versions = Yes
recycle:touch = Yes
recycle:keeptree = Yes
recycle:repository = /trash/%m

admin users = user1
create mask = 0666
directory mask = 0777
veto oplock files = /*.mdb/*.MDB/*.dbf/*.DBF/
oplocks = No
vfs objects = recycle

Thank you.

After bashing my head for several hours, fond the solution, which might help some of you.
it seems that you need to additionally add group from /etc/group to you samba by entering:
net rpc group add yourgroupname
