Constantly running out of sessionid's.

I have a samba-server as a PDC with the ldap passwd backend. Posixaccounts
are resolved via nss_ldap. We have been running successfully for years.
getent passwd returns around 4300 lines.
We are running out of sessionids. I have understood that the maximum is
3000 as per default, and I even tried with MAX_SESSION_ID 3844.
I have compiled samba with-utmp and without-utmp, no change.
I have tried stopping samba (a bit sad on a productionserver since people
have to log out and in again) and removing the sessionid.tdb cache-file
and restarting samba.
After a few days of normal operation I have noted that we are slowly but
shurely running out of sessionids.
Is there any known problem with the sessionid database? Is there any quick
fix on this, can I, for instance, delete the database through tdbtool
while samba is running?
3174 records totalling 4926048 bytes
# smbstatus|wc -l
The current version we're running is 3.0.23c. We experienced running
out of sessionds with 3.0.10 as well (I think it was 3.0.10).
Many thanks for any input on this,
