newbie Q: why need to readd machine to smbpasswd when rejoining domain?

I've noticed that I must delete and then re-add a Win* machine to
private/smbpasswd any time I leave a given domain and then rejoin it.  I guess
this has something to do with the regeneration of the SID, but I would like to
know why this is (and perhaps a way to avoid having to do this).

I'm using 2.2 from cvs, last synched somewhere in the middle of December.
