I heard about that problem once already and it seems to happen only
with Samba domain controllers.  The LookupAccountName system call
gets no information but an error message.  1332 means
  No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.

So the Samba server returns a list of group names but a LookupAccountName
to get the SID fails.

The mkgroup name means, mkgroup wasn't able to create the list of
groups appropriately.

Sorry, no solution yet.
