I browsed the code and the ldap schema changes... if I don't 
misunderstand, the the nextrid is used only for non_unix_account, and 
the algorithmic mapping for unix accounts, rigth?

So, the other question is if a non_unix_account should be in only-one 
domain? In other words: if an user logs in the domain x the ldap stuff 
will provide a rid-x only useable for the domain-x?

I wonder if this may be a strong restriction for large sites with "n" 
domains and only-one ldap base... because the administrators should 
maintain n accounts/rid per-user for access to the n domains. On the 
other hand, if the domain attr takes n-values may solve the multiple 
logon but the rid space may be broken.
