Hang on, how come your group is your user account?  That's certainly
not correct and it's certainly not the default, neither with SAM
accounts, nor with domain accounts.  Is that something set in your
passwd/group files?  If so, change it.

No.  None is a "real" group account with the same SID as your machine,
plus the attached RID 513.  The gid under the new regime would be...

  $ getent group None $COMPUTERNAME+None
