No, it's still possible, but you have to manipulate the uids in certain
ways to be able to do that. A couple of examples showing how to
temporarily and permanently change your uid can be seen here:

I haven't looked at the samba code, but I assume what Marc was
referencing is the correct behavior (probably more clearly done with
setresuid), but is being avoided for some reason; so that's the part
that needs to be figured out.
