hm.  you should be able to not have a rid entry and the ldap system should
create one for you.  if you _do_ have a rid and it's not same as uid, this
is a bug if they are required to be same number.

they can be different and it make no odds.

this is due to an uninitialised field (ACB_INFO) or the password expiry
time.  it's fixed in private/smbpasswd (jerry carter, if i recall
correctly) but of course the ldap code was developed partially cut/paste
