Possible uid leak in idmap

Hi all,

What happens if the samba crashes right after successful allocate_id but
before creating the local user account. Have we lost this particular uid for
good unless we manually claim it by creating user account with that uid

>From what I could see, ldap or tdb already storing the next uid while we
lost the one we have been given due to a crash before having the chance to
use it.
