All ldap stuff has been changed.

For 2.x ldap schema (compat mode), the passwd backend should be like:
	passdb backend = ldapsam_compat:ldap://

For new schema (that also allows idmap et al), the should be:
passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://
For idmap (non unix accounts and so) you need provide some extra 
parameters (uid, gid sets, etc.), documented in the smb.conf man page 
(in the HEAD?).

For me, the alpha24 and ldap (old and new schema, with ldapsam_compat 
and ldapsam) runs well with NT ws; I have a trouble with XP logons 
"odities" but the shares works from XP ws.

Please, read the samba howto colection... the HEAD may be a bit more 
I'm fixing

Your question about:
> idmap only = yes
> idmap uid = 10000-20000
> idmap gid = 10000-20000

I think the Samba Howto collection is being fixed.
