smbpasswd -a problem

Weird.  I have the HEAD branch from 20-Nov.  I just did a smbpasswd -a
command and the user was added to the smbpasswd file but with the wrong
unix ID.  I caught this because the user couldn't login.  Their unix uid
was 226 but their smbpasswd uid was being assigned 291.  I removed the
user entry in smbpasswd and tried again with the same result.  I manually
changed the uid field in smbpasswd to 226 and they could login.  Ideas or
should I get the latest CVS and try again?  With all the recent updates, I
am becoming afraid!  :-)
