allocating uids with winbind

since some days i observe something odd:

recent CVS-winbinds in HEAD and 3_0 are no longer able to allocate 
u|gids if you start from scratch (with an empty idmap).

server_state.uid_high and server_state.gid_high seem not to be passed down
and allocate_id writes zero high-watermarks into the idmap. in consequence 
the checks (if hwm > server_state.{g|u}id_high) fails and winbind fails 
allocating u|gids with "{g|u}id-range full". 

i can workaround it but is anyone else seeing this too?
